Speech-to-Speech North Carolina (STS NC) is funded by a surcharge on landlines and wireless connections in North Carolina
and administered by the North Carolina Division of Services for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing.

Speech-to-Speech (STS) and Hearing Carry-Over (HCO) relay are not compatible with PBX system, VOIP phones or digital landlines; a dedicated landline must be used. While local calls are made at no charge, long distance calls are now available at no charge effective July 1, 2017.

People with a speech disability can make a speech-to-speech (STS) call through STS NC. A relay operator serves as the speech-disabled user's voice and repeats his/her responses to the other caller when appropriate. There may be times when a STS user will be asked to repeat his/her comment so that the relay operator can convey the message accurately. The STS user will hear the other caller’s voice.

STS Relay is not compatible with PBX system or digital landlines; a dedicated landline must be used. While local calls are made at no charge, long distance calls are now available at no charge effective July 1, 2017.
