FROSTBURG, Md. (AP) — A company that provides telecommunications services for the deaf says it’s adding more than 20 full- and part-time jobs in Frostburg.

Hamilton Relay of Aurora, Neb., said Thursday it needs workers to process captioned telephone calls, and to relay conversations in English and Spanish.

A spokeswoman says the Frostburg center currently has 160 workers. That’s about double the number it started with in 2007, when Hamilton was first awarded a state contract to provide the service to Maryland residents.

It is one of five Hamilton centers providing relay services to 16 states and Internet-based captioned telephone services nationwide.
