Telecom Relay Service (TRS)

About Relay Colorado

Relay Colorado is a free service that provides full telephone access to people who are deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, or speech disabled.

Relay Colorado allows text-telephone* (TTY) users to communicate with traditional telephone users through trained relay operators. The operator will dial the requested number and relay the conversation between the two callers. The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and there are not any restrictions on the number or length of calls. All calls are confidential and records of conversations are not kept.

To learn how to use relay services, please visit the Relay Colorado website.

* A Text Telephone, also known as a TTY, TT, or TDD machine, is similar to a typewriter, but it has a cradle where a telephone handset is placed for sending and receiving messages. Users communicate by typing what they wish to say, and reading what the other person types back to them. A user may call directly to another person who also has a TTY machine.
