One of the real marvels of the late 90s is the proliferation of the cell phone. While most people with hearing loss can’t take advantage of cell phones, they have access to an equivalent technology called the two way pager.
If you’re interested in information about specific products or where to buy them, please visit the Two-Way Pager area of our Resource Directory. For general information about the technology and how it can be used, please check out the stories below.
Here’s a story written buy a hearing mother who discusses how her deaf daughter uses one of the two way pagers.
An interesting alternative to a two way pager is a mobile email solution called PocketMail. It’s great for people with hearing loss who need to keep in touch while on the go. And it’s considerably less expensive than a pager.
