 AT&T AND SUPER 8 MOTELS PROMOTE AT&T TDDS FOR DEAF
 PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers who are deaf or


hard of hearing can now make convenient telephone calls using AT&T TDDs (Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf) at a majority of the 914 Super 8 Motels around the country.
 Super 8 Motels, Inc. is promoting the availability of AT&T TDDs, also called text telephones, for use by guests at its franchised motels. TDDs make it possible to type messages back and forth over the telephone line.
 "We want to offer all of our guests the convenience of making calls from the comfort of their rooms," said Dan Jarman, senior vice president of the telecommunications department at Super 8 headquarters in Aberdeen, S.D. "We've already heard from guests who appreciate being able to make a business or personal call, or request housekeeping services using our complementary AT&T TDDs."
 "Hearing people, too, may need to get in touch with a family member, friend or business associate who is deaf," said Gracie Coleman, general manager of AT&T's accessible communications products business. "We're pleased that Super 8 is leading the lodging industry in promoting accessible communications for all travelers."
 Each motel is independently owned and operated, and Super 8 is working with its franchisees to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA requires all public accommodations to provide for effective communication with people with disabilities. Super 8 has had a toll-free TDD reservations number for over five years.
 AT&T also supplies Super 8 Motels with AT&T long distance service, including 24-hour operator services for calling card, person-to-person, billed-to-third-number and collect calling services from all guest rooms at participating Super 8 locations.
 Super 8 Motels is a chain of high-quality, economy lodging properties in 49 states and Canada. Its TDD reservations number is 1-800-533-6634.
 AT&T offers a variety of communications products for people with disabilities. For more information contact an AT&T Phone Center or the AT&T National Special Needs Center at 1-800-233-1222 for voice calls or 1-800-833-3232 for TDD calls.
