Use a Text Telephone (TTY)

If you or a contact must use Teletype (TTY) because of a hearing impairment, a TTY device must be connected for the feature to work.

To connect a TTY device, view Phones options, and then select the Turn on TTY mode check box.

Specify a conference call phone

To change it, view Phones options, and then select a phone from the Join meeting audio from list.

You can also select whether to be prompted to select a device each time you join a meeting.
