Technology for All Abilities

Sprint exemplifies its commitment to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities. As an innovator, Sprint understands that technology can greatly enhance the lives of people with disabilities, so we're always working on ways to make it easier for everyone to communicate more effectively.

Flexible Messaging – enables deaf, hard-of-hearing, or speech-impaired customers to send and receive text messages via their Sprint PCS phones. Text messages may also be sent from a personal computer to a Sprint PCS phone via

711 Access to Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) – lets users access TRS 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Specially trained TRS Communications Assistants can also provide Teletypewriter (TTY) and Speech-to-Speech (STS) services. Sprint is the world's leading provider of TRS.

CapTelSM, developed by Ultratec, Inc., provided by Sprint – It could be a parent, a friend or a loved one – those who are hard of hearing or who have experienced hearing loss later in life can take advantage of CapTel (captioned telephone), an innovative technology to ease communication over the phone for the estimated 24 million Americans with hearing difficulties. The captions are displayed on the CapTel phone's built-in screen so the user can read the words while listening to the voice of the other party. Conversations flow naturally, with normal dialogue and expressed emotions.

Hearing Aid Compatibility – Sprint provides a number of wireless phones that have been measured and rated for use with hearing aid devices. These ratings have been developed to assist hearing aid device users in finding phones that may be compatible with their particular hearing aid devices.

Braille and large print materials are provided for all vision-impaired customers.
