In terms of service, the overall telecommunications relay service market is segmented into VRS (video relay service), internet protocol relay service, IP captioned telephone service, captioned telephone service, voice carry over, and text-to-voice. Among these, the text-to-voice segment is slated to grow at a CAGR of more than 6.0% over the projected time period. This anticipated growth is ascribed to the growing demand for traditional teletypewriters.

This type of service is a conventional TRS service utilizing a TTY to call the CA. Text-to-voice is generally the most common type of service. A TTY user usually calls a telecommunications relay service and types the specific number of the caller whom he/she wishes to call. The CA then places a voice call to the other party by voicing what the user using the TTY is typing as well as typing back what the person on the other line is saying.

The voice carry over segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% through the slated timeframe. The segmental growth is attributed to the high demand from individuals with difficulties in speaking. This service allows individuals having hearing disability, who also wants to use his or her own voice to talk directly to the concerned party and in return receive responses in the text form from the CA.
