English term or phrase: TDD/TYY
TDD/TYY is a short term for something which should come before a certain phone number. Does anyone know what could this be? Thanks in advance!

telekomunikacioni uredjaj / teleprinter za gluve osobe
Explanation:
TDD/TTY (often misspelt as TDD/TYY)is not just a part of a phone number, it is a certain number designated for communication with deaf and hearing impaired people. It is the usual way those people communicate with hospitals and other medical care facilities.

TDD = Telecommunications Device for the Deaf (telekomunikacioni uredjaj za gluve osobe)

TTY = Teletypewriter (teleprinter)

TDD is considered to be a synonym with TTY.
