Although AT&T’s tariff initially restricted discounts to calls dialed directly, during the spring of 1988, the tariff was revised to extend the discounts to TTY calls made with calling cards and operator assistance. 76. NCLD, open letter to consumers, September 17, 1981.

He soon became AT&T’s ombudsman within the deaf community, convincing AT&T to let him display AT&T information in Gallaudet’s cafeterias, acquire sign language training, and attend major deaf conventions. His name sign—a “J” for “Joe” with the shape of a telephone handset to the ear—was a sign of affection from the deaf community, which increasingly showed a willingness to share its concerns with him. 52 The consumer-industry meetings that Heil helped to facilitate resulted in the creation of a high-level AT&T management committee, the Handicapped Services Working Committee.

Telephone companies then subsidized the costs of providing rural service with money collected from telephone subscribers living closer to their central offices. NCLD proposed that the rates for TTY service similarly should be based on the value of this telephone service, rather than its actual costs. If it took three times longer to complete TTY-to-TTY calls, then these calls needed to be discounted by one third. Several of the local efforts to reduce TTY rates were successful. On July 6, 1977, the New York Public Service Commission authorized a 25 percent across-the-board reduction in the telephone bills of any person certified to be deaf by a doctor or state agency.
