Virginia Relay Calls

Anyone can make a Virginia Relay call, including standard phone (voice) users! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Dial 7-1-1 to reach Virginia Relay.
  2. After the prompt, Press 1.
  3. After the prompt, to place a call, Press 1 again; for instructions, Press 2.
  4. After the prompt, enter the area code and number you wish to call.
  5. Once a connection is made, begin speaking as you would during a regular telephone conversation. Remember to speak slowly and directly to the person you are calling, not to the CA.
  6. When you are finished speaking, say “Go Ahead.” The CA will then read/voice the other person’s response to you.
