TeleBraille for Deaf-Blind Callers
Dial 711 or 800-770-8973
Relay users with impaired vision often use special TTYs equipped with TeleBraille or large visual displays and prefer slower typing speeds to read messages. Alaska Relay will provide customized relay service for the unique need of these individuals.
During these relay calls, the Communication Assistant will type at a normal speed, but the message will come across at a rate of 15 words per minute, allowing users to achieve a more readable rhythm. Users can also request increased or decreased rates of text in increments of 5 words per minute.
