Contact Kangan Institute through the National Relay Service.

If you are deaf and/or find it hard hearing or speaking with people who use a phone, the National Relay Service (NRS) can help you.

  • A call through the NRS lets you communicate with a hearing person who is using a phone even if you can't hear or don't use your voice.
  • The NRS has specially trained staff called Relay Officers who help with every call.
  • Depending on the type of call, a Relay Officer will change voice to text or text to voice and AUSLAN to English or English to AUSLAN.
  • Relay officers stay on the line throughout each call to help it go smoothly, but don't change or get in the way of what is being said.
  • Except for calls made through Video Relay, the NRS is available 24 Hours a day, every day.
  • Depending on your hearing and speech, and equipment you have, you can choose from one or more relay call types.
