New Ringback Service for the Hearing Impaired

Doha, Qatar

 

Ooredoo has announced the launch of a new and free service, in co-operation with the Qatari Centre of Social Cultural for The Deaf, designed to help the hearing impaired stay connected.

 

The leading telecommunications operator’s new service lets the hearing impaired share that they have difficulty hearing, giving callers the opportunity to send a message instead of completing the call.

 

Sabah Rabiah Al-Kuwari, Director PR at Ooredoo, said: “We’re delighted to be launching this new service designed to ensure access to connectivity for the hearing impaired within our community, and ensure inclusivity for all. At the heart of our operations is a commitment to ensuring our services are available to all who want and need them, and this new initiative demonstrates this commitment in a practical way.”

 

To activate the service for free, customers with hearing difficulty need simply text 92 to 191.
