How can you talk to deaf people on the phone? (Thanks Mr. Jeff Young)

If you are in California you can dial the number 711.

At this point you will be connected with a California "relay operator."
You need the persons number you wish to connect to.
You will need the person at the other end of the call to have the required hardware.

That's all!

However it can be put to much more complex uses, more information can be found here:
