Relay South Dakota Equipment Types

Communication - and the freedom to reach out using the telephone - is one of life's greatest gifts. Relay South Dakota, together with the Telecommunications Equipment Distribution program (TED), offers a wide range of no-cost equipment, including:

  • iPads & iPhones
  • Amplified Phones & Answering Machines
  • Captioned Telephones

FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP Captioned Telephone Service may use a live operator. The operator generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund. No cost is passed on to the CapTel user for using the service.
