Standard phone users can easily call individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind or those with a speech disability.
No special equipment is needed!
It’s smart to ask the person you are calling how they would like to be reached over the phone.
If the answer is Alaska Relay, then dial 711 (or 800-770-8255 for English or 866-355-6199 for Spanish) to reach a Communications Assistant. Provide the area code and telephone number of the person you wish to call. The Communications Assistant will dial their number and connect you to them.
If needed, the Communications Assistant will explain the relay process before connecting the call.
This relay service is available in English-to-English and Spanish-to-Spanish.
