Relay Conference Captioning

Important Notice

**UPDATE** Sprint requests that your agency submit a Task Order for Federal Relay to ensure no interruption of services. To find out the status of your agency, go to and click "Task Order Status" tab.

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

Now, Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals can participate in meetings, phone calls, videoconferences and multi-party teleconference calls with Relay Conference Captioning (RCC) through Federal Relay provided by Sprint.

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 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
  • Receive captioning more quickly and efficiently for multi-party communications
  • 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.

Federal RCC is managed by GSA and provided by Sprint.
