TTY includes devices for real time text communications and voice and text intermixed communications.  Examples of intermixed communications are voice carry over and hearing carry over.  One example of a TTY is a computer with TTY emulating software and modem.

Here is a simple one from FCC that should at least meet the requirement 
to be authoritative:

A type of machine that allows people with hearing or speech disabilities 
to communicate over the phone using a keyboard and a viewing screen. It 
is sometimes called a TDD.


It however contains the TDD that should be depreciated. And has not the 
indication that it is a North American subset term for more generally is 
called text telephone.
