Telecommunication technologies make many aspects of our life easier, but with so many different devices out there, finding the right equipment to meet our specific needs can be overwhelming. Taking this into account, the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) has developed the Accessible Telecoms Project, funded by the NDIA.
Accessible Telecoms is a nationwide disability telecommunications service that provides independent, up-to-date information on mainstream and assistive telecommunication products suitable for people with disabilities. This service also provides referrals for training, set-up, on-going support and equipment provision.
This is a free service! And it can be used by anyone, people with disability, their family & carers, service providers and advocates.
