AOL to offer Relay via AIM

http://maccentral.macworld.com/news/2004/07/08/relay/
Quote:
Great news for AIM memberís especially those with hearing and speech disabilities. America Online today announced AIM Relay Serves. AIM Relay Services "allows users who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech disabled to connect to a telecommunications relay service and place relay telephone calls right from their Buddy List." This new feature will of course be available in AIM, but also in Apple's iChat.

America Online Inc. on Thursday launched AIM Relay Services, which allow users who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech disabled to connect to a telecommunications relay service and place relay telephone calls right from their Buddy List. The new service works both with any computer or wireless device using AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) and Apple's iChat software. AOL has established partnerships with relay service providers including MCI's IP-RELAY.com service and Hands On Video Relay Service.

Telecommunications relay services enable deaf and speech disabled users to communicate with others over a telephone. Normally, the disabled user inputs text using a TTY device attached to their telephone; a Relay Communications Assistant then places the phone call and reads that text to the person on the receiving end, typing their responses back to the disabled user. This new service lets disabled users leverage instant messaging technology to do the same.

I use www.sprintrelay.com for basically the same service. Have not used my tty in months. Plus I can make calls from work with the sprint relay just fine so I am never out of touch.

Yipeee!!!

I'll have to agree with ideafspy on this!

Christo - is it confirmed? I assume they won't since they have partnered up with WyndTell/GoAmerica. I know both of Wyndtell and GoAmerica have that info on the sites but they had been around for a long time.

www.GoAmerica.com and www.WyndRelay.com

Also check www.FuseWireless.com/TTY - That info has been around for some months, but they won't say when it will be available.

Sprint has confirmed at the National Association of the Deaf conference that they will be releasing the Sidekick version of Sprint Relay. They already have pictures and showed a live demo at the conference.

It is "powered by GoAmerica" so whenever GoAmerica gets around to releasing it is when it'll be out. I'm assuming there are some bugs / issues that are needing to be ironed out, as GoAmerica does not run the Sidekick service, it only resells them from T-Mobile, vs. actually operating the system behind the Wyndtell pagers (RIM 850/857/950).

So, what pager do you want relay on? They told me to send an email to srw@goamerica.com for future pagers that you want relay released on. I put in my Treo 600!

Dammed thieves!

This was my idea using AOL Instant messaging service as part of a TRS program 4 yrs ago and we even implimented it back then. The deafs were telling me this idea stank and pooh-poohed it off and stuff caused our agency to stop tying this idea out.

Now this happens! They stole my idea!

I'm gonna be talking to attorneys about this as soon as I come back from my vacation in August.

well one of friend has found this and suggest i try it which you can contact relay from anywhere on aim through computer, sidekick, or cell phone by add this screenname to your aim list

My IP Relay

more informations if you want to know how to use this by go to http://www.ip-relay.com/myiprelay.htm

For my opinion, I think it much easier than have go to relay site or call relay though phone but it much easier to use relay through aim and it very clear when talk to each other.

It is not only for cell phone but from anywhere even use on aim express, computer, sidekick, berry, any cell phone that has aim in it.

Don't jump the gun on this one. AIM is a widely-used application. Used by millions and millions of people. Somebody is bound to come up with the idea itself sometimes. Relay itself isn't too uncommon, you know. It would be obvious that somebody would get the idea of putting it onto AIM or some other IM application.

Perhaps you should had pitched the idea to AIM when you first came up with it instead of typing it out in public, and letting people know what your ideas are. If you want to take the credits, you gotta keep it a secret till it's legally copyrighted and ready to be used by the public.

But I wouldn't rule out the possibility that somebody did in fact, steal your idea.

My IP Relay in SMS?

Is there a way to use My IP Relay via SMS?

I have a pager that I can access AIM via the WAP Browser, but would like to find out if I can use SMS. (yes, there is a way to access AIM via SMS).

Thanks,

JSG

If you are asking for the screen name of MCI IP-Relay, it is My IP Relay.

It is somewhat pain in the butt using the relay services through AIM, because when you send IP-Relay a message to call, you have to type CALL and hit enter, then blah, blah. It won't do any good to type 'CALL' in first, they will repeat anyway.

Thumbs up Great News! OCDACRELAY

We're going to be bringing back our relay services program through our interpreting services.

We still have our AOL ID OCDACRELAY we are gathering our interpreters to resurrect our relay service program that was pushed down by 'crab theory' 3 yrs ago. We plan to resurrect it on or around November 2004.

Litigation is being assembled and we're developing settlement opportunities for the other SMS based relay service providers.

Put OCDACRELAY on your buddy list!

CEO, OCDAC

What grounds are you going to sue on and what do you expect to achieve with this kind of litigation?

I'm trying to see how it goes from "crab theory" by the population to suing relay. Sounds like someone is just pissed that they didn't get to implement it on the scale it's being done at right now.

SMS relay providers? You mean AIM/AOL or all instant messaging?
