Relay Conference Captioning

Important Notice

**UPDATE** Sprint requests that your agency submit a Task Order for Federal Relay services by September 30, 2008. This will avoid a last minute rush due to the termination of the current government-wide task order on October 31, 2008. For more information about the Task Order process, go to and click the "task order submission" tab.

You're one click away from using Relay Conference Captioning (RCC)

Now, deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals can participate in remote meetings, phone calls, videoconferences and multi-party teleconference calls in a functionally equivalent basis with Relay Conference Captioning (RCC) from Sprint - Federal Relay.

Using the same high-quality captioners that produce closed captioning for television, you can receive live, realtime text streamed to an Internet-connected computer anywhere in the world.  A high-speed Internet connection is not required.

How does it work?

The benefits of RCC

  • The service is available to all Federal employees
  • May reserve your live captioner in advance
  • Can be used at any computer with Internet access
  • RCC conference calls can be much shorter in duration than traditional relay service
  • Can receive a text transcript of the conversation for your records

Remote captioner listens to the call, captions the dialogue and speaks on behalf of the deaf/hard-of-hearing participant.
