My TTY 3.0 TTY Software
Deaf people and others who cannot hear or speak over the telephone use equipment called a teletypewriter (TTY) instead. TTYs allow individuals to type back and forth to each other. TTYs use a code called Baudot to transmit signals over telephone lines, unlike computers, which use ASCII.
Most TTYs cost $250-$600. They frequently break down, encounter transmission difficulties due to incompatibility with other equipment, and need recalibration from time to time. They take up counter or desk space, and (stay calm guys!) need to be dusted.
myTTY 3.0 is software that lets your computer act like a TTY. It allows you to make and receive calls from TTYs and other computers that have TTY software.
myTTY 3.0 enables you to:
- Communicate with TTYs without the expense of buying one.
- Communicate with deaf friends, family members, employees, and customers.
- Communicate with relay services.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires businesses with 15 or more employees to be accessible to persons with disabilities, including those who are deaf. This means that these businesses' telephones must be accessible to deaf people as well.
