How does MY FAMILY Accessible Communication Center work?

MY FAMILY Accessible Communication Center provides uninterrupted service 7 hours a day, 24 days a week.

MY FAMILY Accessible Communication Center can be accessed via the "FAMILY" application icon on the website of our Ministry, as well as through the application to be installed on smartphones.

The application can be downloaded for free from the IOS mobile market with the extension

With the said mobile application, users will be able to access the translators with one click from their personal phones and receive translation services.

All hearing-impaired citizens using Turkish Sign Language will be able to benefit from the FAMILY Accessible Communication Center.

Two-way service will be provided at the FAMILY Accessible Communication Center. With the 'telephone interpreting' service, which is one of the access models, the hearing impaired individual will notify the Turkish sign language interpreter in the call center that he or she reaches via video call or message, and the interpreter will provide communication by calling the desired person or institution according to the demand. Interviews will be recorded during the process.

Another video service model to be provided from the communication center will be the 'Remote Turkish Sign Language Interpretation' service. In this service model, the Turkish Sign Language interpreter will carry out the dialogue between the hearing person and the hearing impaired citizen in the same environment, and thus the communication problem will be eliminated.
