Teletypewriter (TTY)
  • A printing telegraph instrument having a signal-actuated mechanism for automatically printing received messages. Note 1: It may have a keyboard similar to that of a typewriter for sending messages. Note 2: The term "teleprinter" may be applied to a receive-only unit having no keyboard.
