In this paper, sinc-collocation method is discussed to solve Volterra func tional integral equations with delay function (t). Also the existence and uniqueness of numerical solutions for these equations are provided. This method improves conventional results and achieves exponential convergence. Numerical results are included to confirm the efficiency and accuracy of the method.
