Internet Based Relay Services

Alaska Relay does not provide IP based relay services, but we believe it is important to educate all consumers about the variety of services and products available to people with hearing and speech loss. 

WebCapTel is a web-based service for users to read word-for-word captions of their phone calls on a computer monitor, laptop or tablet. Users listen to the other person speaking through any telephone, including landlines or cell phones. No special equipment is required as the web interface handles the conversation.

Sprint IP Relay is an internet based relay service that makes communicating easier than ever computer or tablet. It's easy using one window for dialing directions, call setup, and your conversation. Talk as long as you'd like and no charge for long distance calls in the US. Available in US territories only.

Sprint Mobile IP app enables users to use Sprint IP Relay on their smartphone! The app is available on Android-powered devices running 2.2 or higher and iOS (iPhone) 4.3 or higher. The app is free and available for Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and people with speech disabilities to communicate using text on mobile wireless devices.

Federal Relay Service offers a variety of services to Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Speech Disabled Federal Government Employees. This includes Video Remote Interpreting (VRI), Relay Conference Captioning (RCC), CapTel, IP Relay, VRS, TTY, and Speech to Speech. Each service is designed to provide functional equivalency for federal and military employees.
