7‑1‑1 is the statewide and nationwide telephone relay number that connects standard (voice) telephone users with the deaf, hard of hearing, and/or speech disabled people who use text telephones (TTY's). Simply dial 7‑1‑1 to connect with Relay Utah, or 888‑346‑3162 for Spanish Relay Utah. You will be connected to a relay operator who will connect you with the TTY user you are trying to reach, relay your message to the TTY user, and then relay the response. If you have never participated in a relay call before, the operator will talk you through the simple process. For more information, visit relayutah.gov.
