Relay UK: A Free App for Deaf and Speech-Impaired People to Communicate over the Phone

If you have difficulty hearing or speaking, you may find it challenging to communicate over the phone. However, there is a free service called Relay UK that can help you. Relay UK is a relay service that helps deaf, speech-impaired, and hearing people talk to each other over the phone. You only pay normal charges for any calls you make.

Using Relay UK is easy. You can download the app on your mobile, tablet, or PC, or use it via your Minicom or Uniphone. Once you have linked your number to the app, you can start communicating with others in real time. All you have to do is type what you want to say, and read the replies while an assistant relays the conversation. You can also give your own unique TextNumber to family, friends, and businesses so they can automatically connect to a Relay Assistant without dialling 18002 first.

Relay UK is flexible, too. You can use it on your iPhone, Android, tablet, PC, or Mac, or stick with your textphone (Minicom / Uniphone). Best of all, the Relay UK service is free. You’ll only pay your normal charges for the calls you make. Check with your phone provider for more details.

Relay UK is a fantastic service that enables people with hearing and speech difficulties to communicate with anyone over the phone. If you know someone who could benefit from this service, please let them know about Relay UK.
