This software application installs on Windows PCs and will eventually serve as a viable alternative to TTY's for the deaf and hard of hearing within all state government agencies. It was implemented as a pilot project with the Department of Labor and achieved great success. It has been distributed to most of the smaller agencies, and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is the final and largest agency to install the software. The project team at the Office of Information Technology (OIT) and the EEOC coordinator for DHHS are finalizing a conversion plan. This plan will be implemented in phases for a smooth transition and to remove any barriers as we offer this new powerful, yet user friendly, tool throughout state government.
