New Law Funds Tablets For Hearing-Impaired People

March 26, 2014, 5:42 PM

PIERRE, SD -

A new law in South Dakota will allow the state to fund smartphones, tablets and other devices for deaf, hard of hearing or speech-impaired people.

Monthly phone bills for all South Dakotans include a 15 cent charge that helps accessibility for people with a range of disabilities. The fund was established 25 years ago.

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the devices that were covered under the telecommunications fund before it was revised by the legislature this year were mostly outdated. Under the new law, people can receive newer devices such as iPads.

The Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program is administered by the state's Department of Human Services.

Information on how to apply to obtain a device can be found online at www.relaysd.com
