NARSF Programs uses the Telus-Relay Service (TRS). TRS enables persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or experience difficulty with speech and who use a Teletypewriter (TTY) to communicate with other people. The TRS service through Telus provides specially trained operators to relay a conversation between an individual using a TTY (teletypewriter) and an individual using a standard telephone. Telus also provides the services of Voice Carry Over (VCO) and Hearing Carry Over (HCO).
TRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and there is no additional charge for using the TRS to place local calls. Calls placed through the TRS are entirely confidential. TELUS Relay agents are professionally trained and follow a strict code of ethics. No record of conversation content is retained.
