A person who is deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind, or speech-disabled uses a TTY to type his/her conversation to a Communications Assistant (CA), who then reads the typed conversation to a hearing person. The CA relays the hearing person's spoken words by typing them back to the TTY user.
  1. Dial the TTY number, 711 or  1-866-280-2050 (1-866-280-2053 for English only)
  2. Puerto Rico Relay will answer with "8234" (for CA identification), "F" or "M" (for CA gender) and "NUMBER CALLING PLS GA." ("GA" denotes "go ahead.")
  3. Type in the area code and telephone number you wish to call and then type "GA."
  4. The CA will dial the number and relay the conversation to and from your TTY. Type in "GA" at the end of each message.
