You, as a standard phone user, can easily call individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind or those with a Speech Disability!
No special equipment is needed!
It’s wise to ask the person how they would like to be reached over the phone.
If the answer is Relay Missouri, then dial 711 (or 866-735-2460 for English, 800-520-7309 for Spanish-to-Spanish or English-to-Spanish/Spanish-to-English Translation) to reach a communications assistant. Provide the area code and telephone number of the person you wish to call. The communications assistant will dial the number and connect you to them.
If needed, the communications assistant will explain the process before connecting the call.
This relay service is available in English-to-English, Spanish-to-Spanish and Spanish-English/English-Spanish Translation.
Don't Hang up!
When you answer your phone and hear, “Hello, this is Relay Missouri…”, please don’t hang up! You are about to talk, through a communications assistant, with a person who is Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind or has a Speech Disability.
Please, don’t hang up. It could be the most important call of the day!
