TTY is an abbreviation for TeleTypewriter. It's a device used by the deaf to "text" messages across TTY is an abbreviation for TeleTypewriter. It's a device used by the deaf to "text" messages across an analog telephone line. These days, text messaging has just about obsoleted the device however it remains well-suited to the task. Because the TTY was originally designed for an analog phone system it worked very much like an analog modem; converting "text" into "sounds" that were then re-interpreted back into text at the receiver's end. Both parties of the conversation would have to have a TTY machine. This adapter allows a person to connect a TTY machine to the "analog" audio input and output of the phone.

I have found that the problem is not with square or trying to find an adapter. What I realized is th I have found that the problem is not with square or trying to find an adapter. What I realized is the fault lies with otterbox. They make the plastic guards which surround the headphone jack too tall to allow the square to plug in. So what I did was to take a razor sharp knife and shave a little off those plastic guards. This allowed the square to plug in and work perfectly and the rubber cover still completely closes on the case. I think otterbox should fix their product as I'm told people have had problems with their headphones as well due to the same issue.
