Wyoming Relay Service will relay Directory Assistance (DA) calls (i.e. to 411) between relay users who are deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, or speech disabled and the Local Exchange (LEC) DA operator. Once the caller makes the request, the Communications Assistant will contact the appropriate LEC DA operator. After obtaining the requested telephone number, the caller may choose to place the call through Wyoming Relay Service or dial it directly.
TTY/VCO users can request Wyoming Relay Service retrieve messages from their voice answering machines or voicemail.
Dial the TTY number, 711 or 1-800-877-9965; or dial the VCO number, 711 or 1-877-877-1474.
To request answering machine retrieval, the TTY/VCO user types "AMR" with instructions or password and then "GA."
The Communications Assistant types "PLS PLACE YOUR HANDSET NEXT TO YOUR ANS MACHINE AND TURN ON GA."
The TTY/VCO user places the handset on the speaker part of the answering machine until all messages have been retrieved.
Then the TTY/VCO user places the handset back on the TTY or VCO device and types "GA."
The Communications Assistant types the messages.
Voice users can request Wyoming Relay Service retrieve TTY messages from voice answering machines or voicemail.
