Relay Missouri

Relay Missouri: Relay Service for the Hearing and/or Speech Impaired

 

Relay Missouri is a service that provides full telephone accessibility to people who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, and speech disabled. It can be used to make telephone calls to family, businesses, or anyone else who has a phone, anywhere in the world.

 

Through the Relay Missouri Center, hearing and/or speech impaired Missourians using a TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf) will be able to communicate with people who are using standard telephone equipment. In turn, Missourians who are voice callers using standard telephone equipment can call a TDD user.

 

Relay Missouri utilizes specially trained gents located at the Relay Missouri Center to relay conversations between parties. The Relay Missouri Service Center handles calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All calls are strictly private, and no records of any conversations are maintained.
