Information about New York Relay Service

"WHAT IS RELAY SERVICE?

New York Relay Service is a statewide service that connects standard (voice) telephone users with deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind, speech-disabled, or late-deafened people who use text telephones (TTYs) or voice carry-over (VCO) phones.

This service allows TTY or VCO users to communicate with standard telephone users through specially trained relay operators. Calls can be made to 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. Anyone wishing to use New York Relay simply dials the relay number to connect with a relay operator. The relay operator will dial the requested number and relay the conversation between the two callers."
