They have to wait until the jailor will take them to another room that has a TTD phone....and good luck! hopefully it's working...(as it wasn't in Duval County)....and the inmate has to wait and wait until a jailor decides or "feels" like taking them to use the TDD phone.

I'm not sure about prisons, but I'm sure there is a seperate room, just like the jail for deaf prisoners.
I made it clear that the jailor couldnt just take me when "he felt like it" I made sure I was taken to my phone when I felt like it. The jailor did not like it.
