Digital Cell Phone/TTY & VCO

Acoustic & Induction Amplifiers for Cell Phones

In the past, only analog cellular phones could be used with a TTY. Now a new generation of digital cellular phone service is available which is specifically TTY compatible. While availability is still limited, TTY users will now be able to enjoy the benefits of digital wireless technology with TTY compatible digital cell phones.

New models of phones will be identified as TTY-Compatible or TSD-121 compatible. To ensure satisfactory operation, check with your retailer or telephone manufacturer to make sure the digital cell phone you select is a designated TTY compatible model. In addition, your cell phone must have a 2.5mm jack to connect to the TTY.

The following TTYs are specifically meant to be used with the new TTY-compatible cell phones, but will also work with an analog phone and some cordless telephones.

Please Note: To use VCO (voice carry over), the person on the other end of the conversation must be using a TTY, or the call has to go through the telecommunications Relay Operator.

Portable VCO adapter with a connecting cable to direct connect to the 2.5mm hands free headset jack of a cell phone. Will also connect acoustically to work on any telephone. The adapter can be straped onto the earpiece of the telephone to "hear" the TTY tones being sent, or connected by the cable (included). The message is displayed on the 2-line, 40-character display. The user speaks back into the mouthpiece of the handset. This adapter will work with most cell phones. As it straps onto the phone, a good seal has to be made to the earpiece, so the configuration of some "flip style" phones may not work. Preset VCO call request for calling ease. Backlit display. Pouch with belt loop for carrying convenience. Uses 2 AAA batteries, 4 included. Size 4.4" x 2.8" x 1.25". One year warranty.
