Those who are DeafBlind can use a Braille TTY to make and answer calls through Maryland Relay. A Braille TTY includes a keyboard, which allows the user to type his/her side of the conversation, and a Braille display for reading the other person’s responses.
Please complete a Customer Profile for immediate connection to Braille TTY Operator, and to personalize your calling preferences.
Braille TTY-to-Braille TTY calling is also available. To learn more about making and receiving Braille TTY calls, download detailed instructions now, or call 800-552-7724 or 410-767-6960 (Voice/TTY) or 443-453-5970 (Video Phone) to request Braille TTY training.
Because Braille is often read at a slower pace than traditional text, Braille TTY users can request the Maryland Relay Operator to type at a speed slower than the standard rate. Braille users can request a specific speed, in five-word increments, beginning at ten words per minute up to 45 words per minute. In order to determine the pace that works best, Braille users can ask the Operator to try different speeds until the user finds a speed that is comfortable.
Braille TTYs and other assistive telephone devices are available through the Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program for qualified Maryland residents. Learn more about the MAT program.
