Next Generation Text (NGT)
Contact us using Next Generation Text service
You can now contact us using the Next Generation Text (NGT) service
Why use Next Generation Text?
If on telephone calls you can’t hear the other person’s voice or don’t catch all that they’re saying, or they can’t understand what you’re saying, the Next Generation Text (NGT) Service can help.
By using a smartphone, tablet, or computer and making a phone call you can type to our relay assistant who will speak your words to the person you’re calling, and the relay assistant will type their reply so you can read it on your display. You can use NGT whether you’re at home, in your office, or on the move by typing and/or reading your phone conversation.
- Can’t hear on the phone – NGT relay assistants will type what the other person is saying so that you can read their words.
- Can’t speak on the phone – type what you want to say and the NGT relay assistant will speak your words to the other person.
- Still want to use a textphone – no problem NGT works with textphones in the same way as the old Text Relay.
How you use NGT depends on your own needs. To help us give you the information you need click on one of the descriptions below:
Type & Read: If you can’t hear the other person on a phone call and they have problems understanding what you say, NGT can help by letting you type your words and read what the other person is saying.
Type & Hear: If you can hear the other person on a phone call but they have problems understanding what you say, NGT can help by letting you type your words to the other person and listen to what they say. This can be known as Hearing Carry Over.
Speak & Hear: If your hearing and speech are fine but you’d like to call someone who is deaf or speech-impaired, you can call them through NGT. You can also call NGT users – for example, if a friend or family member who uses the NGT Relay has left a message asking you to ring them back through NGT.
