iPhone launches data plan for deaf users
If there's one thing we're passionate about here at Popgadget, it's the need to make great technology easy to use and available to everyone. So I'm excited that Apple has been busy considering how to adapt its cult cell phone (you know the one...) to the needs of the hearing-impaired.
According to Gizmodo, AT&T has just announced something called the Text Accessibility Plan (TAP) for iPhone users. TAP will give iPhone customers with disabilities the choice of unlimited text messaging, Web browsing and easy access to e-mail for $40 a month.
TAP is available to new and existing iPhone users with qualifying disabilities, all of whom will have to complete an application for eligibility to access the service.
AT&T's website has application instructions, if you'd like to know more.
