Message Relay services

Bell currently offers two types of message relay services (MRS): Teletypewriter (TTY) relay service, and Internet protocol (IP) relay service. Message relay services enable people with a hearing or speech disability to make and receive telephone calls via text with the assistance of a relay operator. In an MRS call, the relay operator communicates with the person who has a hearing or speech disability via text and with the other party via voice.

Bell TTY Relay service

This service lets people with hearing or speech disabilities communicate with hearing persons by phone with the help of trained operators.

The Bell IP Relay service
