How Does STS Relay Work?

It’s straightforward!

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.

  • 1

    You speak on your phone directly to the other party.

  • 2

    The relay operator repeats your spoken words to the other party as needed for clarity.

  • 3

    The other party talks directly you.
