you are relaying the deaf person's (or whoever else uses the service) to whatever phone number they are calling.
say you got on the website or tty and you type in a number for me to dial as the operator. i would have to dial the number and then when the person answers, you tell them that they are getting a relay call (unless you specify not to announce relay) and then you say whatever the person on the tty or website is typing to you. then you say "GO AHEAD" and that tells the person on the phone end of it to talk. when they talk, the operator types back what they are saying to the person on the tty or website and they can read it.
basically, it allows for deaf folks to make telephone calls like the rest of us.
i don't give a fuck if you make pranks at all cuz i don't work there anymore, thank christ. now april on the other hand...she still works there. heheh.
