TTY for Washington & Oregon Information

A person who is deaf, deaf-blind, hard of hearing, or speech impaired uses a TTY to type his/her conversation to a relay operator, who then reads the typed conversation to a standard telephone user. The relay operator relays the hearing person's spoken words by typing them back to the TTY user.

711 is the statewide telephone relay number that connects deaf, deaf-blind, hard of hearing, and/or speech impaired people who use text telephones (TTYs) with standard (voice) telephone users. Relay users can now simply dial 711 to connect with Washington or Oregon Relay. This allows easier access, particularly for less experienced relay users such as businesses, children, or friends and family of TTY users
