Assistive Telecommunications Equipment


The Telephone Equipment Distribution (TED) Program provides free assistive telecommunications equipment to eligible Minnesotans who are having difficulties using the telephone due to a hearing, speech, or physical disability.

Available equipment includes captioned telephones, amplified telephones, TTYs, light flashing ring signaling devices, loud ringers, hands-free speaker phones, and more.

If you do not qualify for the TED Program, staff can provide you with a directory of vendors that sell assistive equipment for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, speech disabled, or physically disabled.
