Through the Kentucky Relay, a person who is deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind, or speech-disabled uses a TTY (text-telephone) to type his/her conversation to a relay operator, who then reads the typed conversation to a hearing person. The relay operator relays the hearing person's spoken words by typing them back to the TTY user. This is a free service.
