It’s a cinch!
Just dial 711 (or 800-662-1220 for English or 877-662-4886 for Spanish) on your text telephone/teletypewriter (TTY) and the relay operator will answer with “New York Relay”.
Type the area code and telephone number you wish to call and type “GA” (“Go Ahead”). The relay operator will dial the number and connect to the other party.
Type your message on your TTY phone to the relay operator. Type “GA” (“Go Ahead”) at end of each message. The “GA” indicates that it is the other party’s turn to respond.
The relay operator reads your typed message aloud to the other party.
The other party listens and speaks directly to you. The other party says “Go Ahead” to indicate that it is your turn to respond.
To conclude the call, type “GA to SK” (“Stop Keying”) to indicate that you are ready to hang up.
