Video Relay Service for the Deaf

The Sonoma County Library is now providing Video Relay Service (VRS) for the Deaf, hard of hearing, and speech disabled. This service is a replacement for the TDD and TTY (teletype) machines used by the Deaf community for decades. VRS allows Deaf patrons to make outgoing calls to hearing parties with the assistance of a certified sign language interpreter. Purple Communications provides the service. This service and equipment are provided free of charge to public agencies through the Federal Government.
