We received this at Trace -- but it makes an interesting point that
might be picked up in techniques.

content: I am a man with partial vocal fold paralysis.

Recently I have been having to use a TTY/HCO to communicate over the

My problem is forms which demand a telephone number. Yours is the first
form that I have encountered, paper or electronic, that will allow me to
enter proper calling instructions:

1. Dial the relay operator number.
2. Explain that you are making an HCO call.
3. Give the relay operator the number to be contacted.

Just how are people to fit all that information into a space which
normally only allows the entry of ten numerals? The communications act
must not cover this aspect.

Now days most forms without a telephone number simply will not process,
they are automatically rejected.

Can your organization start to address this world wide problem?

Please, share this information with others!
