TTY isn’t really dead

I'm Deaf

That’s for everybody who believe that TTY is already dead because of videophone. I would like to make the note that high-speed isn’t everywhere. Simple, there are only about 65% high-speed available in nationwide of United States of America. Either there have reason that high-speed is expensive or not available in certain area.

Surprise, some people are still own and use TTY for some reason. Some of them include me, cannot depend on videophone when there is an outage, because videophone is required a source of power for monitor and high-speed modem. At least, there is cellphone for us to use.
