Press Release


"Thank you" to everyone who participated in the tty payphone test at the Halifax Shopping Centre in 2006.  Your comments were heard across Canada!  The T-9 technology that was going to be used for tty payphones is no longer going to happen because you did not like it.  Based on your feedback, a new "blackberry" (qwerty) style keyboard is now available on many, many payphones across Nova Scotia. 

These new payphones can be found in more places than the old tty payphones with the slide out drawer.  They are being installed in hospitals, malls, grocery stores, corner stores, gas stations, the airport, ferry terminals, bus and train stations, etc. 

Now, we all agree that it would be nice if Aliant would set up videophone payphones, but that's not going to happen for a while.  So until then, it will be great to have tty payphones available in many more places across Nova Scotia.

What do they look like?  Below are two pictures – one of the full payphone and one of the qwerty keyboard seen under the key pad of the pay phone
