Want to use Kansas Relay?

Simply dial 711 and you will be connected to a relay operator. The relay operator will dial the requested number and relay the conversation between the two callers. All calls are confidential. No records of any conversations are maintained.

Allows use of special equipment

The service allows consumers to use special equipment (such as captioned telephone, TTY, VCO or HCO) to communicate with standard voice telephone users through specially trained relay operators (RO).

Apply for free Telecommunications Equipment

The Kansas Telecommunications Access Program known as Kansas TAP can help you identify the telecommunications equipment you need to use Kansas Relay services. Contact a KS TAP Demonstration Center for more information and to discuss the equipment that best meets your needs.
