Hearing and Speech Solutions

Text with 9-1-1 (T9-1-1)

If you’re deaf, hard of hearing or speech-impaired, Text with 9-1-1 (T9-1-1) lets you communicate with an emergency 9-1-1 operator via text message. Keep in mind, you must be registered to use this service.

Forwarded messages via Extreme Text Messaging will not work.

Closed Captioning

This service provides you with subtitles at the bottom of the screen. Rogers passes through all closed caption subtitles that are provided by television channels.

Activating closed captioning

Digital Cable

High Definition: If your digital box is connected to the TV using component or HDMI cable, activate captions and modify their appearance through the INFO and Settings buttons on your digital box’s remote control.

Standard Definition: You can access captions by activating the caption feature on your TV’s menu. Your TV instructions will explain how to use this feature.

Learn more about Closed Captioning

Many people use captions to enjoy their favourite TV programs, but few understand how the captions are made. Most people think captions are created automatically by computers.

In fact, captions are created by people—highly skilled and trained people. Computers aren’t smart enough yet to accurately caption the content in live broadcasts.

Captioning live programming, like news and sports, is the hardest part of a captioner’s job because the captions have to be created at the same time as the broadcast. This video explains how live captioners generate accurate and timely captions under pressure.

Message Relay Service (MRS)

If you have hearing or speech disabilities, our Message Relay Service (MRS) can help you make and receive calls via teletypewriter (TTY) or over the internet. Please note that MRS is not available for emergency services calls.

To access MRS via TTY from a wireless device call 7-1-1.

TTY

A Teletypewriter, or TTY, device lets you use your phone by typing out messages instead of speaking and listening.

To access MRS via TTY from a wireless device call 7-1-1.

IP Relay

The IP Relay service lets you communicate via text online using web-capable devices through interactive messaging applications. You must have Internet access to use this service.

Wireless Plans and Add-ons

We offer a flexible plan that’s specifically designed for our fully and partially deaf customers. The plan includes Flex Data, Unlimited Messaging, and Voicemail. Pay-per-use Talk is billed at 45¢ per minute. Roam Like HomeTM and Rogers NHL GameCentre LiveTM also come standard with this plan.

Sign Language Interpreter Services

Customers who would like to bring a sign language interpreter while at a Rogers store are welcome to do so. Any associated costs will be invoiced by the interpreter to Rogers directly.

Video Relay Service

Video Relay Service (VRS) helps people who use sign language to communicate with voice telephone users. The sign language user connects to a VRS operator through videoconferencing. The operator then places a voice telephone call to us and relays the conversation.

VRS Eligibility

If you live in Canada and are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, and wish to communicate via video using sign language you’re eligible for VRS.

SRV Canada VRS customers must register for the service and install the SRV Canada VRS app in order to use it.

For more on registration see Registering for VRS below, or visit SRV Canada VRS’s Register page.

VRS Compatibility

VRS works with:

  • A broadband internet connection
  • Desktop computers (Mac and PC), smartphones and tablets (Android and iOS).

VRS does not work with:

  • Calls to ‘900’ and other pay-for-service phone numbers. This includes some 800, 866, 877 and 888 numbers.

VRS Features

SRV Canada VRS provides 9-1-1 service during its hours of operation across Canada. However, 9-1-1 service is not available outside of service hours. See the SRV Canada VRS website for full hours of operation.

All 9-1-1 calls are treated as urgent and go directly to first place in the SRV Canada VRS call centre’s queue.

When a registered SRV Canada VRS customer calls another registered SRV Canada VRS customer, the system automatically connects the two customers directly without involving a Video Interpreter.

Registering for VRS

To register for VRS:

  1. Visit SRV Canada VRS’s Register page.
  2. Follow the instructions to register for the service and create your account.
  3. Within 1 business day, your 10-digit phone number will be emailed to you. Start using this number to make and receive SRV Canada VRS calls.
