TDD stands for "Telecommunications Device for the Deaf". It is a device that allows students with hearing loss to communicate over telephone lines through typed messages. All states have a telecommunications relay service so if a faculty member needed to communicate by telephone, an operator would speak written messages from the student using a TDD, and then type the spoken words from the faculty member without a TDD. The Services for Students with Disabilities office is responsible for providing TDD access to students who require it.
