People who are deafblind or have low vision can use a TTY and/or TeleBraille device to type words to the Communications Assistant who then speaks the typed words to the other caller, and types all spoken words back to the deafblind caller. The average typing speed is slower than traditional TTY relay, and can be modified to as slow as 5 words per minute.
English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English translations are also available for TeleBraille Relay customers.
TeleBraille Relay is not compatible with PBX systems
or digital landlines; a dedicated analog landline
must be used.
