How can I set up a TTY device in Microsoft Teams to use during conference calls? Also, is there a type or specific list of TTY devices that are best to use with the TTY function in Teams? I understand that you can go into settings and "check" the box to enable the feature, but how do I set it up through my computer as well?

Hi @corykukkola

See here how to enable TTY in Microsoft Teams (about halfway down)

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/manage-your-call-settings-in-teams-456cb611-3477-496f-b31...

Like Skype for Business connect a TTY device to the machine, turn on TTY mode and sign out and back in.

Unfortunately, there doesn't look to be any specific devices that stand out on the Teams certified devices

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/across-devices/devices

So I would recommend one a good make. Hamilton CapTel looks to be a good one that is generally available. May be worth reaching out to them

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris

@corykukkola - did the Hamilton device work for you?

 

I have a similar requirement!

 

Thanks,
