I'm sure most users have gone through the different settings and at least seen the one that mentions TTY support, From everything I've been able to glean from various sources, this support is native to the Android OS since at least 2.0 release. However, I have never seen an app that makes use of it. Why is that?
From everything I've been able to learn from Verizon, the TTY support mentioned is only for connecting a droid to a TTY device that must be connected to a telephone in order to the make the call. The TTY merely translates the input it gets from a user via a keyboard or microphone to baudot for transmission.
All in all, it's ridiculous. With a DROID phone, you HAVE a keyboard and microphone. Why can't a user just use the damn phone itself,
I'm deaf, so this is hardly an idle question for me. Who or where should I go to investigate this? Is there a group or forum that might be of help in getting such an app written?
