*Dane County relies upon Wisconsin Relay (7-1-1) to communicate by telephone with people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind, and speech-disabled. Using a TTY, a Wisconsin Relay 'communication assistant' (CA) voices everything to the hearing person that is typed on one side of the conversation, and types everything the voiced caller says for the other side of the conversation.

  1. Dial '7-1-1,'
  2. '7-1-1' will answer by saying: "Wisconsin Relay CA# _____. Go Ahead."
  3. Tell the CA you want to make a Relay call & give the CA the phone number
  4. The CA will dial the number.
  5. When call goes through, you will say your greeting and then say, 'Go ahead.'
  6. Person you called will respond and then end with, 'Go ahead.'
  7. Like a 'Walkie-Talkie' call, you and the person you called will continue alternately talking and ending with 'Go ahead' (to let the other person know it is time to respond).
