  • Telecommunications Relay Service Text Telephone (TRS) Users 
    Callers using Text Telephones (TTY/TDD) are able to communicate through a specially trained Communications Assistant (CA) who relays telephone conversations verbatim. The CA translates typed words into speech and spoken words into typed messages.
    Speech-To-Speech (STS) enables people with a speech disability to use their own voice, a voice prosthesis or augmentative communication device to make a phone call. A specially trained communications assistant assists them by repeating their words to the other person. 
    TRS provides Voice Carry Over (VCO) for TTY users who speak but are unable to hear. Hearing Carry Over (HCO) for TTY users who can hear but are unable to speak.
    Call……………………………………………………………………..711
