You can use a text telephone/teletypewriter (TTY) to communicate with anyone and anytime on the phone!  This service is designed for people who are Deaf, Hard or Hearing or those with a speech disability.

The Communications Assistant reads aloud your typed words to the standard phone user and types the standard phone user’s spoken words to you.

This relay service is available in English-to-English and Spanish-to-Spanish.

How Does TTY Relay Work?

It’s simple!  

Just dial 711 or 800-366-6888 on your TTY and a Communications Assistant will answer. 

Type in the area code and telephone number you wish to call, and type “GA” (Go Ahead).  The Communications Assistant will dial the number and connect to the other party.
