Device demonstrations allow consumers to compare features and benefits of a particular device or category of devices. Demonstrations are for individuals, or a small group of individuals, and are not the same as devices shown during an exhibit or public awareness event.
During a device demonstration, consumers can:
Compare features of one or more similar devices or software systems
Experience hands-on time exploring similar devices or software systems
Receive professional advice
Make a decision whether or not to borrow a device for short-term loan
To learn more or to schedule a device demonstration, please contact STAR or one of our partners listed below.
Although there is no charge for a device demonstration, customers are asked to complete this short survey.

Minnesota Relay (7-1-1) And Direct Access Numbers
7-1-1 is a toll-free, nationwide relay service access number. You may dial 7-1-1 from anywhere in the United States and be connected to the relay service in the state you're calling from. While the 7-1-1 access number is easy to remember, dialing the direct toll-free number for a specific type of relay call may result in faster connections because the call does not need to be transferred.
