Typetalk is a service managed by Action on Hearing Loss (formerly RNID) and is delivered by BT. Typetalk connects people who cannot speak or hear on the phone, with other people using a telephone, by providing a text-to-voice and voice-to-text relay service.
TextDirect is part of the UK telephone network that provides an automatic connection to Typetalk, when someone using a textphone communicates with someone using a standard telephone. This service also supports textphone to textphone calls.
Calls are charged at your telephone communication provider's standard rate - there is no additional charge for this service.
