In celebration Deaf Awareness in September, I am looking for local agencies or businesses that would allow me to come do a short demonstration with CapTel, and other telephone amplifiers, for our local Senior Citizens and Hard of Hearing.
This would be a great opportunity to bring awareness to new consumers.
