The Use of Teletypewriters in Virginia. Telecommunications Study Commission, Working Paper No. 17.
This review of the use of the teletypewriter (TTY) by state agencies and institutions in Virginia focuses on two major systems which employ TTY's not interfaced with computers, i.e., the Teletypewriter Exchange Service (TWX) and Teletypewriter for Deaf People (TD). Expenditures and policies are discussed briefly, and a need for improvement is indicated. Problem areas concerning TTY transmission where a central state planning, management, and coordination agency could play a significant role are identified as determination of user needs, TD systems improvement, telephone utilization (to take advantage of special billing rates), and research and development.
