Telecommunications Relay Service
The Telecommunication Relay Service is a free service that enables customers who are deaf, hard-of-hearing or speech-impaired to use their TDD or TTY to place calls to and receive calls from hearing people. It also enables hearing people to call TDD/TTY users.
Typed messages from a TDD/TTY are transmitted to a communication assistant who voices them to hearing persons. Hearing persons` messages are voiced to the communication assistant who relays them to the TDD/TTY printout or display.
Calls can be placed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no limits to the length or number of calls. All calls are confidential. Long distance calls are placed at direct dial rates. If you are a registered TDD/TTY user, discount rates may apply for long distance calls. Check with your long distance carrier.
