Standard phone users can easily call individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind or those with a speech disability. 

No special equipment is needed! 

It’s smart to ask the person you are calling how they would like to be reached over the phone.  

If the answer is Relay North Dakota, then dial 711 (or 800-366-6889 for English or 800-435-8590 for Spanish) to reach a relay operator.  Provide the area code and telephone number of the person you wish to call.  The Communications Assistant will dial their number and connect you to them.

If needed, the Communications Assistant will explain the relay process before connecting the call.
