National Relay Services

National Relay Services allow those who are deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing or people with a speech disability to have access telecommunications services. The services allow text-telephone (TTY) or special equipment users such as Braille TTYs or Captioned telephones to communicate with standard voice telephone users through specially trained Relay Operators or captioners. Calls can be made to virtually anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with no restrictions on the number, length, or type of calls. All calls are strictly confidential, and no records of any conversations are maintained.
