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, vision, 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 adaptive equipment for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, speech disabled, or physically disabled.

For more information on the TED Program, please visit their Web site at, or call 1-800-657-3663 (voice) / 1-888-206-6555 (TTY).
