Do you have a speech disability and live in the USA? If so, you can now use a free telephone relay service, available 24 hours a day. This service is similar to the TDD service available to the hearing disabled except that it doesn't require typing. This service, called Speech-to-Speech (STS), provides communication assistants (CA's) for people with difficulty being understood by the public on the telephone. It is available for business, medical, and personal communication.STS is available in all 50 states, plus the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand Sweden. STS is easy to use and available from every phone and does not require registering to use. Just pick up the phone and dial 711 and request a Speech-to-Speech Operator. If you have difficulty with the 711 number you can alternatively call 1-800-854-7784 in California (look at the website for other 800 numbers by state). Your family, friends and business acquaintances can call you and use the STS services just as easily. There is both training video and a list of the Speech-to-Speech numbers for you to view at the website. For help email firstname.lastname@example.org.
