About Purple Communications, Inc. (formerly GoAmerica)
- Through its varied services, Purple Communications has been continuously serving people with hearing or speech disabilities since 1982. Our innovations, including the first IP-Relay service, the first wireless relay service, and one of the nation's first interpreting agencies, have enabled millions of people to enrich their lives through better, richer communication. Today, Purple is one of the nation's leading providers of online and in-person communications services for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, or speech-disabled.
Purple provides video relay services under the Hands On VRS brand, and text relay services under the IP-Relay and i711.com brands. Purple is also the leading provider of on-site interpreting, video remote interpreting, and CART services which it markets under its Purple Language Services brand.
Together, these services provide crucial communication options for the 28 million consumers in the United States who are deaf or hard of hearing.
