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.

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. Businesses now have a cost-effective
way of attracting new customers (i.e., those who are deaf), as well as
staying in compliance with government regulations.
