Deaf and hard of hearing adults needed to participate in a study on amplified phone and Internet-Protocol captioned telephones

The Gallaudet University Technology Access Program (TAP) is conducting a study at Gallaudet University to compare how people who are deaf or hard of hearing, but can speak on the telephone, use an amplified telephone versus an Internet-Protocol Captioned Telephone Service (IP-CTS). The study will be done in two sessions: the first session will be approximately 90 minutes and the second will be approximately 60 minutes. Those eligible to participate in the study can receive $100 for their participation. 

 
In order to participate in the study, you must meet the following requirements:
  1. Be 18 years of age or older;
  2. Have normal vision or corrected to normal with glasses or contact lenses. You must be able to comfortably read text on a captioned telephone monitor.
  3. You must be deaf, hard of hearing, or a person with a hearing loss in both ears.
  4. You must use a hearing device (hearing aid or CI) when you make voice phone calls.
  5. You must use a voice phone/captioned telephone, both listening and speaking (with or without captions), an average of three times per week.
If you are interested in participating in the study, please contact Paula Tucker at paula.tucker@gallaudet.edu.
 
This study has been approved by the Gallaudet Institutional Review Board.
