Imagine asking your parents or hearing friends to call the doctor to make the appointment or to call to order pizza! Deaf and hard of hearing individuals now have the right to choose from numerous relay service providers in different format, which is TTY relay, Internet Protocol (IP) relay, or Video Relay Services (VRS).
Relay Service is letting deaf and hard of hearing
individuals to use video and internet relay calls with their family,
friends, or business associates. Calls are placed and received through
American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter or operator thru Internet
connection and VRS. The services for Deaf and Hard of Hearing people
have gradually expanded to use devices such as a personal computer,
mobile phone, PDA, and many other devices.
Relay is a way that helps Deaf and Hard of Hearing people communicate with hearing people more easily when not in person. Hearing can use their phone to call a special operator who listen to their words and change the words into ASL for deaf and hard of hearing people. They can see the operator signing ASL on TV or computer screen.
