People who have difficulty speaking are often better understood when they can be seen. With Visually Assisted STS, Maryland Relay Operators use speech and visual cues to facilitate conversations for Speech-to-Speech (STS) users.
To protect Operator anonymity, Visually Assisted STS users are not able to view Operators during calls. Likewise, an Operator will not indicate to the other person that he/she can see the Visually Assisted STS caller, unless instructed to do so.
To learn more about placing and receiving Visually Assisted STS calls, please call our STS User Training Line at 866-269-9006 (English) or 866-744-7471 (Spanish).
