Pennsylvania Relay - communication service for deaf/hard-of-hearing

Pennsylvania Relay is a 24-hour service that allows individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or have difficulty speaking to communicate freely with friends, family and businesses. For people who have difficulty hearing or speaking, the simple act of using a telephone can be a challenging and frustrating experience. Whether it's conducting business, speaking to doctors, making appointments or just keeping in touch with family and friends, an inability to communicate over the phone can affect almost every aspect of a person's day-to-day life. Multiple service options are available to fit individual communication needs.

To learn more about the services offered through Pennsylvania Relay, contact customer care:
