The goal of this survey is to better understand how such adults use current voice telecommunications technology, what barriers they face using it, and what needs they have for improved accessibility. Survey participants must be 18 years or older, have hearing loss, use voice telecommunications regularly (at least once per week), and have access to the internet in order to complete the survey. The survey will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete.
