CallTTY TDD software 2.0 Ranking & Summary
CallTTY TDD software 2.0 description
CallTTY TDD software 2.0 offers you a great tool which can be used to communicate with phone TTY/TDD devices (Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf) via a sound card, without TTY modem. A simple interface between sound card and phone line or acoustic connection with phone handset are used. Together with "Virtual Audio Cable" software CallTTY can work via Skype Internet-phone, without additional hardware at all.
- The "Setup / View / Logarithmic spectrogram scale" option or Alt-Z hotkey switches the spectrogram window between a linear or logarithmic scale. Analogously, the "Setup / View / Logarithmic oscillogram scale" option or Ctrl-Z hotkey switches the oscillogram scale. The logarithmic scale is usually more convenient, but it uses more computer resources.
- The "SQL" button turns squelch on. The number to the left of the "SQL" button determines the squelch threshold. When squelch is switched on, the horizontal red line shows the squelch threshold. Set squelch threshold some above noise level.
- The program transmits characters entered into the bottom window. During transmission, sent symbols change their color and are copied into the Sent window (second from bottom). When the option "Setup / View / Show sent symbols in RX window" is selected, sent text is shown in the receiving window also. Transmitted text is deleted from the Input window after the "Line Feed" character is transmitted.
- If the "Setup / Interface / Send whole word only" menu option is selected, CallTTY doesn't start to transmit the next word until a space, right square bracket or line feed is entered.
- The "Mode" menu selects a working mode (Baudot, ASCII-7, ACSII-8, or DTMF). Most TTY devices use Baudot mode. In DTMF mode you can decode digits pressed at phone keyboard.
- Signal speed is selected via the "Speed" menu. Most TTY devices use 45.45 or 50 bauds speed. Some devices use 47.6 bauds speed.
- If your sound card can work in full-duplex mode, it can be useful to enable the "Setup / Interface / Use duplex sound card" option. In this case you can check your own transmitted signal.
- The "Dial" button is used to dial a phone number entered into the edit field to the left of this button. This feature works if your phone line supports tone (DTMF) dialing.
- The "F1"..."F12" buttons (and "F1"..."F12" keyboard keys) are used to transmit previously defined macros. You can use "Esc" key and Ctrl-F1...Ctrl-F12, Alt-F1...Alt-F12 combinations also. The Alt-F6 combination is available only via mouse. The number of macro buttons can be increased by the "Setup / View / Number of macros buttons rows" option. Macros are inserted into the Input window in a place indicated by the cursor. To open the Edit Macros window, select the "Edit macros" menu. You can edit text on macros buttons there also. In turn, keyboard macros may contain special character sequences or macrosequences.
- In particular, macrosequences can point to edit fields "E1", "E2", "E3" and "E4" located above the Sent Symbols window. The "Clear" button clears those fields.
- The "File / Send Text File" menu command puts text from selected file into the Input window. The text can also contain macrosequences.
- The "OnTop" button puts CallTTY in front of all windows.
- The menu command "File / Clear Buffer" clears the 'Received Text' window and invisible receiving buffer. The command "File / Save Buffer" saves both parts of the receiving buffer (invisible and visible) into a file.
- The menu command "File / Open Buffer in Notepad" saves visible part of receiving buffer (about last 20 KB) in a temporary file and opens this file by a text editor. Then you can view this file or print it. The hotkey of this command is Ctrl-N.
- The "File / Open Capture File" menu command opens a capture-file for received text. New received text is written into that file. If the file exist, new text is appended to it.
- The "File / Close Capture File" command closes a capture-file. Capture-file state is shown in the status line. The hotkey for capture on/off commands is Alt-L. You can use command line arguments "/c Filename" to open a capture file at the program startup. "Filename" is name of the file to be opened.
- The "Setup / Interface / Real sound card sampling rate" is used to correct sound card sampling rate variation against the nominal frequency (11025 Hz). This parameter defines the real sampling frequency.
- The "Unshift On Space" option is switched on and off by the "Setup / Text / Unshift on space" checkbox. When this option is selected, receiving characters are switched to "Letters" after receiving "Space" or "Line Feed" character in Baudot modes.
- Manual switching of receiving character shift can be made from keyboard. Keypad "*" or Alt-(keypad "*") is Figures and keypad "-" or Alt-(keypad "-") is Letters.
- The options "Setup / Text / English charset", "Setup / Text / Russian charset",
- "Setup / Text / English/Russian Extended Charset" and "Setup / Text / Swedish Charset" select the alphabet to be used in Baudot modes. The "Setup / Text / Extended Baudot" option switches on the extended code table (with high and low letters) for these modes.
- The windows appearance can be changed via the "Setup / Fonts & Colors" options.
- Some windows and panels can be hidden by the "Setup / View / Show oscillogram window" and "Setup / View / Show edit window" options.
- CallTTY can decode signals from a WAVE-file. Desired file is selected by the "File / Decode From File" command.
- A WAVE-file must be Windows PCM file, without compression. A sample rate must be 11025, 22050 or 44100 Hz. Preferred file parameters are mono, 16 bit, 11025 Hz.
- Selected options of the program are saved by "Setup / Save" button. Options are written into the file CALLTTY.INI . The program looks for this file in the working directory. You can have several variants of the ini-file for different purposes. Just create several shortcuts to CALLTTY.EXE each with a different working directory.
- The number shown in the "FrB" field of the status bar means the number of free buffers for recording a signal. If it is reduced to ten or less the speed of the computer will not keep up. Try to reduce the number of simultaneously running programs or replace the computer
- CallTTY together with Virtual Audio Cable can work via Skype Internet-phone now.
- Input and output sound devices can be selected independently now.
