Telewriter (TTY)

A telewriter allows for communication using typed messages over telephone lines.

A telewriter (TTY) is a piece of equipment that allows persons with speech and hearing impediments to communicate over telephone lines using typed messages.

A TTY signalling unit is provided to registered users on a no charge loan. A second TTY can be requested for a principal contact. Approved TTY users also receive a 50% discount on long distance calls within Canada*. For more information, call 1.800.SASKTEL or visit a SaskTel Store near you.

TTY Directory Designation

All directory customers, residential or business, can have the code TTY displayed following their listed name in the DirectWest directory (e.g., Smith, John (TTY). This will allow readers of the directory to recognize that the customer listed has a TTY. There is no charge for this service.
