Learn about no-cost caption phone at SIR #53
Stan Dennison, a specialist in the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, will explain how those with hearing problems can receive a caption phone at no cost at the Jan. 22 luncheon of Sons in Retirement Branch #53 at Oakmont’s East Recreation Center.
The phones, which provide a read-out of the caller’s words, are provided free of charge under Title IV of the ADA, which mandates a nationwide system of telecommunications relay services to make the telephone network accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing, or who have speech impairments.
Branch #53 meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the East Rec Center, 7902 Oakmont Drive. A social hour starts at 11 a.m. with luncheon at noon catered by A La Heart Catering. Any Oakmont man interested in attending this presentation and/or membership should contact Dave McCuan at 707-539-3028. Women are welcome at 1 p.m. to hear the speaker.
