Seventh location in Kentucky
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 26, 2016) — The Kentucky Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (KCDHH) opened a new demonstration site for its Telecommunications Access Program (TAP) in Ft. Mitchell for Kentuckians with hearing loss or speech impairment to test a variety of telephones.
Redwood Assistive Technology Center allows Kentucky residents to test a variety of telephones, including amplified phones, signaling devices and hands-free phones that are free to qualified applicants. The demonstration site is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
TAP, administered by the KCDHH, is a statewide effort to provide residents of Kentucky, who are deaf, hard of hearing, speech impaired or have both a hearing and vision loss, with landline or wireless equipment to make communication on the telephone more accessible.
Redwood is one of seven sites throughout the state where you can see and test the equipment. Other locations are in Frankfort, Lexington, Louisville, Owensboro, Paducah and Pikeville.
