TELEBRAILLE FOR DEAFBLIND
Relay users who are Deaf-Blind, or who have low vision, often use special TTYs equipped with TeleBraille or large visual displays and prefer slower typing speeds to read messages. New York Relay will provide customized relay service for the unique need of these individuals.
711 or 800-662-1220
During these relay calls, the relay operator 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 request increased or decreased rates of text in increments of 5 words per minute.
HOW DOES TELEBRAILLE RELAY WORK?
The other party's conversation to a deaf-blind caller goes through a relay operator.
The relay operator types the other party's conversation to the deaf-blind caller.
The deaf-blind caller "reads" the conversation through a TeleBraille device.
