Specially trained relay operators serve as the speech-disabled user's voice and repeat his/her responses to the called party. Rhode Island Relay's unparalleled equipment and exceptional Speech-to-Speech (STS) operator training ensures that speech-disabled users will be heard and understood. There may be instances when a STS user will be asked to repeat his/her message to ensure that it is relayed correctly. As an added benefit, Rhode Island Relay can permanently establish your call type as Speech-to-Speech.
