Explanation:
También se usa TTY, pero en muchos casos con la aclaración entre paréntesis.

A telecaption decoder is an assistive device that enables deaf and hard of hearing television viewers to watch closed captioned programs or movies. This device is similar in size to a VCR and connects to the television set. Beginning July 1, 1993, all televisions with screens 13" or larger, imported or manufactured in the United States will have built-in decoders

A Text Telephone (TTY) is a device that permits people with hearing and/or speech impairments to communicate using the standard telephone system without the aid of an interpreter. The device itself generally consists of a keyboard and a display screen. To operate successfully, both the transmitting and the receiving parties must have compatible TTYs. The first devices were actually teletypewriters as used by Western Union to send telegrams

And the second:

TTY (stands for "text telephone") is the communications protocol that TDD's use, also known as Baudot, which uses a rate of about 45 baud. (http://www.its.uiowa.edu/its/cs/at/tdd.html)
