711 or 877-842-5177

Individuals with a speech disability may make STS calls, where a specially trained Relay Operator listens in to a call and serve as the STS user's voice and repeat his/her responses to the called party if needed. 


  1. The STS user speaks directly to the other party.

  2. The relay operator repeats the STS user's spoken words if needed.

  3. The other party speaks directly to the STS user.


This enhanced feature makes call set-up a piece of cake for you.


In order to speed up the set-up of the call, Relay Connecticut now offers STS Email Set-up.   Now, STS users can email call instructions or information 2 to 24 hours prior to the call.  This can include information such as the number to be dialed, the name of the person being called, any special instructions and the subject of the call, or anything that makes it easier for the STS user to complete the call. This feature cannot be used to request a specific CA, schedule an STS call or be used in lieu of placing a live call.

MY STS WIRELESS:   Dial *STS or *787

While 711 has been implemented across the nation, it’s often difficult or time consuming to reach STS when not at home.  Sprint has implemented a national wireless short code for STS to make it easier to place or receive STS calls.  Simply dial *787 (*STS) from any Sprint wireless phone to be connected with a Sprint STS relay operator. 

Please note that this service is only available on the Sprint wireless network at this time.

Receiving calls is now easier than ever for STS users with My Name and My Places.

Once STS users register My Name, voice callers can simply call and ask for the STS user directly by name without having to provide the telephone number.


STS users can also be reached at multiple numbers.  Simply add multiple telephone numbers and hours of availability and we will do the rest. When voice users call, we’ll simply reference the STS user’s “My Places” to see the registered phone numbers.  Different numbers can be added for certain times of the day and days of the week.

Imagine spending time dictating a message for an answering machine and then getting a busy signal and being unable to leave that message.   This is even more frustrating for STS users for whom it may take 15 minutes to dictate that message.

With My Saved Messages, the STS relay operator can help.  Upon request, the STS relay operator can copy any messages desired onto the Customer’s Profile for 24 hours.  When the STS user would like to try again, they simply redial STS and ask to retrieve saved messages.   After 24-hours the message copied into the profile is automatically deleted from the system.

STS users are allowed to determine how we support them.  Whether the STS user would like the STS relay operator to re-voice the entire conversation or simply repeat upon request, we will provide STS that meets the customer’s needs.

Your profile can store up to 30 speed dial numbers in a STS user's phonebook.  To place a call, the STS user simply asks for a caller by name.
