WA Relay Captioned Telephone Service Survey – July 2, 2018
Dear Hearing Loss-WA,
We are sharing a Captioned Telephone Service (CTS) survey for Washington state residents who use CTS services and we are wondering if you would be able to insert the survey on the Hearing Loss – WA website and share with your HLAA members. They survey can be printed and mailed to Hamilton Relay (the WA State TRS contractor) at no cost to the person completing the survey.
Individuals completing the survey will receive a free stylus pen.
The information collected will assist Washington Relay towards providing better outreach services to the hard of hearing community.
If you have questions, please contact me.

HLAA-WA’s letter to Washington Senators Cantwell and Murray urging them to support the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017. This legislation would direct the FDA to create regulations related to a category of hearing aids sold over the counter and intended for adults with mild to moderate hearing loss. HLAA-WA Letter
