How Does STS Relay Work?
Just dial 711 (or 877-735-8261) and then ask for a Speech-to-Speech relay operator.
Provide the area code and telephone number of the person you wish to call. The relay operator will dial the number and connect to the other party.
You speak on your phone directly to the other party while the relay operator listens.
The relay operator repeats your spoken words to the other party as needed for clarity.
The other party talks directly you.
STS Call Setup
The STS Call Setup feature allows STS users to send an email with call instructions or information to the Relay Operator in advance. STS users can complete this form online between 2 and 24 hours prior to the call. The form includes information such as:
- The number to call
- The name of the other caller
- Special instructions
- The subject of the call
- And anything that makes it easier to complete the call
