The Uniphone is an exciting new concept in TTYs, combining a telephone, TTY and amplified phone - all in one! Now, people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or hearing can all share one phone. A full-featured TTY, the Uniphone includes a bright display and a comfortable keyboard and an amplified handset.
It is perfect for making Voice Carry Over (VCO) calls. With VCO, you speak directly to the other person and read their typed responses on the display. VCO calls can be made through a toll-free relay service, or directly between Uniphone users for absolute privacy. In a similar way, people who can hear but cannot speak can make Hearing Carry Over (HCO) calls.
Voice Carry Over ( VCO ) lets individuals with a hearing loss continue to use their own voice on the telephone.
VCO allows people to speak directly to the person they are calling, then read that person's response on their CapTel, TTY, VCO Phone or Uniphone display. No more straining to hear the response, or asking people to repeat themselves. Because you can read their words, the meaning comes through loud and clear every time. And the conversation maintains a personal, natural feeling, because people are using their own voice.
