H. G. Lang - In 1964, of the more than 85
million telephones in the United States and Canada, less than one
percent were used regularly by deaf people. In that same year, three
enterprising deaf men, Robert H. Weitbrecht, James C. Marsters, and
Andrew Saks, started the process that led to deaf people around the
world possessing an affordable phone system that they could use. This
book tells how these three men collaborated to solve the technical

story of how Deaf people fought and won, and changed the world for the
better for deaf people everywhere.
