Phone conversations a problem? Relay UK is the answer.
A little bit of history
People have been using the UK's national relay service since 1991, when it was known as TypeTalk.
Back then, it was only available to textphone users (because that was the only technology available).
In 2012, Ofcom decided that UK users needed an improved relay service, one that would allow for more natural conversations on a wide range of devices that weren't around when the first relay service started: smartphones, computers, and tablets.
So, in 2014 BT launched the Next Generation Text service - now called Relay UK, which they run for everyone on behalf of all UK landline and mobile phone providers
