Nebraska Relay Makes Telecommunications Accessible for
Nonstandard Phone User
is Nebraska Relay? Nebraska Relay is a free,
completely confidential 24-hour public service that
makes the use of the telephone possible and a better
experience for many thousands of citizens and visitors
of the state who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind,
speech-disabled, and hearing.
How does Nebraska Relay work? The person
dials the toll-free Nebraska Relay number and gives
the communications assistant (often abbreviated as the
CA) the area code and number of the person receiving
the call. An example of a Nebraska Relay service is
a highly trained CA voices the typed comments by the
TTY (text telephone) user and types the spoken comments
by the other person back to the TTY user. Nebraska Relay
provides several options to meet the needs of people
who do not use the standard telephone.
