iPhone customers who are deaf or have a hearing or speech disability can apply for AT&T's Text Accessibility Plan (TAP). It offers iPhone customers with those disabilities the choice of unlimited text messaging, Web browsing and easy access to email.
Carlton Hill, VP of Product Management for AT&T's wireless unit says "Our Text Accessibility Plan allows customers who are deaf or have hearing or speech disabilities to literally tap out their communications on the go....Now with TAP for iPhone, users can tap, flick and pinch the innovative Multi-Touch touch screen for a completely new world of functionality."
This new plan is available to new and current iPhone users with qualifying disabilities through AT&T's National Center for Customers with Disabilities (NCCD). To qualify for the iPhone TAP, customers must complete an application form for eligibility.
