Spanish TTY Relay

A person who is deaf, deaf-blind, hard-of-hearing, or speech disabled uses a TTY (text telephone) to type his/her conversation to a Relay Operator (OPR), who then reads the typed conversation to a standard telephone user. The OPR relays the standard telephone user's spoken words by typing them back to the TTY user. The Spanish Translation versions will be available in Español soon.

  2. The Relay Operator (OPR) will answer "NJ RELAY OPERADOR/A 9999F ME PERMITE EL NUMERO QUE DESA LLAMAR GA”.
    • 9999 is an OPR identification number. Each OPR has his/her own identification number.
    • F or M is the gender of the OPR.
    • GA stands for "Go Ahead" which means it's your turn to type.

  4. The OPR will dial the number. The OPR will type everything the standard telephone user says and type GA at the end of each response.
  5. Proceed with the conversation by typing your response. Type in 'GA' at the end of each response. The OPR will read everything you type to the standard telephone user.
