As the RNID fact-sheet points out:
Many deaf and hard of hearing people find it difficult to use a voice-phone and prefer to use a textphone to make calls. However, traditional textphones are expensive, old-fashioned analogue devices, which do not work well in modern corporate networks. In contrast, TalkByText is a software only solution that can be installed on PCs, allowing businesses to communicate effectively with textphone users without the need for any additional, costly equipment.
These services should also for the first time be accessible from mobile phones running the RNID TalkByText Mobile software.

SustainIT's eWell-Being Awards are the UK's only National Awards that identify and promote social, economic and environmental benefits of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
Any other deaf LibDems out there? Lets build up some pressure to make sure this advance is exploited wherever LibDems have some power or influence. In our own Party for starters.
