The Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System (WTRS) is a government-funded telephone system that enables teletypewriter (TTY) users who may be deaf, hard of hearing or speech disabled to communicate by phone. Telephone and TTY users are able to access the relay 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Calls are relayed by operators called Communication Assistants (CAs) who act as an “invisible link” between the two relay users. During the relay call, a CA will voice everything typed by the TTY user and type everything said by the telephone user. In this way, the relay allows people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Speech Disabled to have a telephone conversation with anyone, anytime, even if the person they are talking with does not have a TTY device.
Dial 7-1-1 to connect to the relay. 7-1-1 has been designated as the national 3-digit number for relay use. By dialing 7-1-1 from any phone in Wisconsin, including cell phones, you will automatically be connected to WTRS. Any person may connect to the relay using 7-1-1 at no charge. Long distance charges apply on any long distance relay calls. For specific connection methods contact Wisconsin Relay Customer Service as 1-800-395-9877 Voice or 1-800-283-9877 TTY.
