In 1963, Dr. Robert H.Weitbrecht, an
American physicist who was deaf, developed an acoustic coupler that could
send and receive teletypewriter signals
over the telephone lines. His invention,
the Weitbrecht Modem, enabled people
who are deaf to use the telephone for
the first time.
While modern technology now makes it
possible to build advanced microcomputer devices like your new Ultratec
Dr. Robert H. Weitbrecht,
text telephone, the Weitbrecht modem
1920-1983, inventor of the
remains the major technological breakfirst text telephone modem.
through that began telecommunications
for the deaf. Ultratec wishes to
acknowledge the importance of Dr.Weitbrecht’s contribution to the
welfare of people who are deaf the world over.

Important safety instructions
When using your Uniphone 1140, basic safety precautions should
always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and
injury to persons.
Save these instructions!
1. Read and understand all instructions.
2. Follow all warnings and instructions on the Uniphone 1140.
3. Unplug the Uniphone 1140 from the wall outlet before
cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp
cloth for cleaning.
4. Do not use the Uniphone 1140 near water, for example, near a
bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet
basement, or near a swimming pool.
5. Do not place the Uniphone 1140 on an unstable cart, stand, or
table. The Uniphone 1140 may fall, causing serious damage to
the Uniphone 1140.
6. The Uniphone 1140 should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not
sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company.
7. Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not
locate the Uniphone 1140 where people can walk on the cord.
8. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords. This
overloading can result in a fire or electric shock.
9. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the
Uniphone 1140, but take it to a qualified service person when
service or repair work is required. Opening or removing covers
may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect
re-assembly can cause electric shock when the Uniphone 1140
is subsequently used.
10. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an
electrical storm. There is a remote risk of electric shock from
lightning.
I M P O RTA N T S A F E T Y I N S T R U C T I O N S • 3
11. Unplug the Uniphone 1140 from the wall outlet and refer
servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
a. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
b. If liquid has been spilled into the Uniphone 1140.
c. If the Uniphone 1140 has been exposed to rain or water.
d. If the Uniphone 1140 does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only those
controls that are covered by the operating instructions.
Improper adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the Uniphone 1140 to
normal operation.
e. If the Uniphone 1140 has been dropped and/or damaged.
f. If the Uniphone 1140 exhibits a distinct change in
performance.
12. Do not use the Uniphone 1140 to report a gas leak in the
vicinity of the leak.
13. Ultratec recommends plugging your Uniphone 1140 into a
surge-protected outlet. This will protect the TTY from
damage caused by electrical surges due to lightening or other
causes.
Battery safety
Caution: To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons, read and
follow these instructions:
1. Use only the type and size battery specified in the battery
instructions for your unit.
2. Do not dispose of the batteries in a fire. Cells may explode.
Check local codes for possible special disposal instructions.
3. Do not open or mutilate the batteries. Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be
toxic if swallowed.
4. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to short them
with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys.
The battery or conductor may overheat and cause burns.

INTRODUCTION
Your Uniphone 1140 is both a text telephone (TTY) and a standard
telephone. It can be used to make telephone calls, TTY calls, or
Voice Carry Over (VCO) calls.
For a voice call, pick up the handset and use the Uniphone 1140
just like any other telephone.
For a TTY call, press the TTY On/Off key and type. To use VCO, pick
up the handset at any time during your call.
Other features of the Uniphone 1140 include the following:
Auto-answer answers the telephone when you are busy or away
and takes TTY messages.
Turbo Code® communication protocol transmits typed characters
to other Turbo Code TTYs as fast as you can type. Turbo Code also
allows you to interrupt the other person while he or she is typing.
Auto ID™ alerting system. Auto ID automatically alerts the
answering party that you are calling by TTY.
Fastdial is a directory that allows you to store 10 telephone
numbers including police, safety, and fire numbers. When you want
to call a number that is stored in the directory, the Uniphone 1140
can dial the number for you automatically.
The ringer and the flasher both signal incoming calls.
The greeting message lets you send a quick “Hello.”
Call progress displays the ringing or busy status of the telephone
line.
Battery backup allows you to use the Uniphone 1140 during a
power outage. A 9-volt alkaline battery (not included) powers the
Uniphone 1140 for 30-45 minutes during a power outage.

This symbol is to alert you to important operating or servicing
instructions that appears in your manual. Always follow basic safety
precautions when using the Uniphone 1140 to reduce the risk of
injury, fire, or electric shock.
SETUP • 7
Installing a battery
Installing a battery (not included) allows you to use the Uniphone
1140 for up to 45 minutes during a power outage. It will also save
any settings or message changes if there is a power outage. Use a 9volt alkaline battery. The battery compartment is on the bottom of
the Uniphone 1140. Follow the steps below to install a battery.
WARNING! Do not burn or puncture the battery. It could
release toxic material that could injure you. Do not dispose of the
battery in household trash. For information about recycling or
proper disposal, consult your local trash collection or disposal
organization.

Plugging in power and the telephone line
CAUTION! Do not plug the Uniphone 1140 into any line
other than a standard analog telephone line. If you do, you may
damage your telephone system or the Uniphone 1140. You will also
void your warranty.
Press the TTY On/Off key. You will see TELEPHONE RESET and
then the following display:
You will see this display whenever you are not using the
Uniphone 1140. It means the telephone is hung up and
the TTY is off.
SETUP • 9
What kind of telephone line?
You need a standard analog telephone line with either pulse or tone
dialing. If you plan to use the Uniphone 1140 in an office, the line
may need modification because many offices have
digital telephone systems. Contact your telephone installer to
ensure your line supports a standard single-line telephone. This is
the same kind of line you need for many fax machines or computer
modems.
Connecting a signaler light
If you want to use a signaler light with the Uniphone 1140, plug
the signaler light into an unused extension telephone wall jack. If
you only have one telephone wall jack in your house or office, use a
Y-jack (also called a duplex jack) to plug both the Uniphone 1140
and the signaler light into the same wall jack. You can buy a Y-jack
at any telephone store.
Setting pulse or tone dialing
The Uniphone 1140 is set for tone dialing. If your line uses pulse
dialing, set the dial switch on the back of the Uniphone 1140 to
PULSE. You can temporarily switch to TONE during a call to
access services that require tone signals. After the call, switch back
to PULSE. Contact your telephone company if you are not sure
about your telephone line dial setting.
About the help key
The help key allows you to read information on the display about a
feature that has brackets around it. For example, press the Menu
key. You will see the main menu with the brackets around
FASTDIAL. Hold down the ? key to read information about the
Fastdial feature—you do not need to press the Shift key. Release the
? key when you finish reading.

About Turbo Code®
Turbo Code is an improved version of Baudot code. It sends signals
to other Turbo Code TTYs as fast as you type and allows you to
interrupt the other person during a conversation. The Uniphone
1140 takes care of connecting in Turbo Code or Baudot code,
depending on which code the other TTY is using. The Uniphone
1140 only uses Turbo Code when you connect with another Turbo
Code TTY.
Turbo Code also allows you to use the special “shift” characters on
the top row of your TTY keyboard (example: @ # % ^ & * _ < >).
If your call is connected in Baudot, these characters cannot be
received or printed at the other end of the line. This is yet another
example of why Turbo Code is better for TTY communication than
Baudot—especially in the day of sharing your email address.
You can turn off Turbo Code by following these steps:
1. Press the Menu key.
2. Press the O key to display the Option menu.
3. Hold down the Left Shift key and the Right Shift key. While
these are held down, press the
key to display the
Options 2 menu.
4. Press the T key. You will see TURBO CODE OFF.
5. Press the Menu key to leave the Options 2 menu.
Turbo Code will remain off until you turn it on again. Follow the
above steps to turn on Turbo Code.
Turbo Code indicator
When you see this indicator, it means you are in Turbo Code.
You can turn off the indicator by following these steps:
1. Press the Menu key.
2. Press the O key to display the Option menu.

Press the Menu key to leave the Options 2 menu.
The indicator will stay off until you turn it on again. The TTY will
continue to use Turbo Code (unless you have turned it off). Follow
the above steps to turn on the indicator.
Using Turbo Code interrupt
When you are connected to another Turbo Code TTY, you can
interrupt the other person while he or she is typing. Hold down the
Shift key and press the I key. Your display will say INTERRUPT
REQUESTED. The other person’s display will say INTERRUPT.
The other person can either stop typing and let you type, or ignore
your interruption and continue.
If you see INTERRUPT on your display and your flasher blinks
while you are typing, it means the other person wants to interrupt
you and start typing. You can choose to stop and let the other
person go ahead or continue typing.
The interrupt feature only works with TTYs that have Turbo Code
and only when the other person is typing continuously. If nothing
happens when you try to interrupt the other person, the other TTY
may not have the interrupt feature or the other person may not be
typing continuously.
About Auto ID™
Auto ID alerts a hearing person that you are using a TTY. It only
alerts in TTY mode. Auto ID will come on after you dial a number
and continue until you start a conversation. Auto ID alerts the
person by sending several audible tones over the telephone line
every few seconds. It helps emergency services such as 911 detect
that you are calling by TTY. You will see SENDING ID on the
display every time the Uniphone 1140 sends out tones. Auto ID is
SETUP • 15
not the same as Caller ID, a separate service available through your
telephone service provider that requires additional equipment.
You can turn off Auto ID by following these steps:
1. Press the Menu key.
2. Press the O key to display the Option menu.
3. Hold down the Left Shift key and the Right Shift key. While
these are held down, press the
key to display the
Options 2 menu.
4. Press the
key to choose AUTO ID.
5. Press the
key. You will see AUTO ID OFF.
6. Press the Menu key to leave the Options 2 menu.
Auto ID will remain off until you turn it on again. Follow the
above steps to turn on Auto ID.
Note: When Auto ID is off, it will not send tones. This means
that an emergency service such as 911 will not hear Auto ID tones
to detect your TTY call.
Handset volume (amplification)
The handset volume setting has three levels: minimum, medium,
and maximum. When you press the Vol key, you will see MIN,
MED, or MAX on the display. Each time you press the Vol key, you
change the volume setting. After MAX, you go back to MIN again.
The volume setting returns to MIN 30 seconds after you hang up.
Using an external printer
The Uniphone 1140 can be used with any centronics/parallel
printer, letting you print your TTY conversations and auto-answer
messages. These types of printers are available at office supply
stores. A special cable is required in order to use an external printer.
The cable is available only through your dealer or Ultratec.

Clearing conversations
If you do not want to leave a conversation in memory, you can erase
the conversation memory. This erases all conversations, but does not

Using Voice Carry Over (VCO)
People who cannot hear well but wish to speak for themselves can
make Voice Carry Over (VCO) calls. A VCO call is a combination
voice call and TTY call—you speak and read responses and the
other person listens and types. The Uniphone 1140 is ideal for
VCO calling because it is a combination voice telephone and TTY.
VCO calls can also be made through a toll-free relay service. When
you use relay, you speak to the non-TTY user and the
Communication Assistant (CA) types spoken replies that you can
read on your Uniphone 1140 display.
You can find the number to your relay service in your telephone

AUTO-ANSWER
The Uniphone 1140 auto-answer feature answers the call when you
are out and takes TTY messages.
The Uniphone 1140 answers a call by sending a TTY message that
says YOU HAVE REACHED AN ANSWERING MACHINE,
PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE GA. It then waits for the caller to
leave a TTY message.
If the caller leaves a TTY message, a 1 is added to the number of
messages on the display. The Uniphone 1140 hangs up after no
characters are received for 45 seconds, and waits for the next call.
When you have auto-answer messages, the flasher blinks every 10
seconds.
You can personalize the auto-answer message to say anything you
want. You can also set the number of times the telephone rings
before it answers the call.
Auto-answer does not record voice messages. It only records TTY
messages.
The auto-answer memory can save about 4,500 characters.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Dialing does not work.
Make sure you have the right dial setting (pulse or tone) selected for
your Uniphone 1140. Make sure you are plugged into an analog
telephone line. See Plugging in power and the telephone line on
page 9.
The display shows all numbers and punctuation marks
instead of words.
Press the spacebar. The numbers and punctuation marks should
change to words.
The Uniphone 1140 does not turn on when I press the
TTY On/Off key, or the Off-hook light blinks, even though
the AC adapter is plugged in.
Be sure the AC adapter is firmly plugged in and the electrical
outlet is working. If this does not solve the problem, the AC
adapter or the Uniphone 1140 may have a problem. Contact your
dealer or Ultratec.
The display on my Uniphone 1140 is blank when the
AC adapter is plugged in.
Try pressing the TTY On/Off key or pick up the handset. The first
time you plug in the Uniphone 1140, you must do this to turn the
display on. You also have to do it after a power outage if you have
not installed a battery.
The Uniphone 1140 works fine in the evening, but
does not work during the day.
You may have plugged the AC adapter into a switch controlled
outlet or electrical power strip. Make sure the switch or power strip
is turned on.
My Uniphone 1140 does not ring when I get a call.
Be sure the ringer switch on the back of the Uniphone 1140 is set
to Lo or Hi.
T R O U B L E S H O OT I N G • 4 1
Some characters are not being sent.
Because Baudot code does not support special characters, it does not
recognize some of the “shift” characters on the top row of a TTY
keyboard (example: @ # $ % ^ & * _ < >). To type these
characters (such as in an email address) make sure your call is
connected in Turbo Code (see About Turbo Code® on page 14).
Resetting the Uniphone 1140
If the Uniphone 1140 has power but is not working
properly, you may be able to correct the problem by resetting it.
Resetting the Uniphone 1140 returns all options to their original
(default) settings and erases all conversations and auto-answer
messages. To reset the Uniphone 1140, do the following:
1. Hold down the Left Shift key and the Right Shift key. While
these are held down, press the Menu key. The display will give
a version number and say RESET Y/N.
IMPORTANT! Everything in memory will be erased. There
is no way to get the contents back after you reset the
Uniphone 1140.
2. Press the Y key to reset. The display says TELEPHONE
RESET. Press any other key if you change your mind and
decide not to reset the Uniphone 1140.

STICKY KEYS
Ordinarily, to use a Shift key character, you must hold down the
Shift key while you press another key. If you have trouble pressing
two keys at one time, the sticky keys feature lets you still use the
Shift key by pressing one key at a time.
To turn on sticky keys, pick up the handset or press the TTY On/Off
key, and then press either Shift key five times. You will see STICKY
KEYS ON on the display. (During a TTY conversation, press the
Shift key 5 times to turn on sticky keys.)

•
press the Shift key and then press the 4 key to type $
•
press the Shift key and then press the 5 key to type %
Press either Shift key five more times to turn off sticky keys. The
display says STICKY KEYS OFF.
When the sticky keys feature is on, you can lock down the Shift key
so that it affects every key that you press. The Shift key stays locked
down until you unlock it again. To lock down the Shift key, press it
twice. To unlock the Shift key, press it once more.
For example, to type all uppercase letters, press the Shift key twice
to lock it down. Type your message. Press the Shift key once more

Conversation etiquette
GA
When you talk with another person by TTY, you type
while the other person reads. When you want the
other person to respond, type GA for “Go ahead.”
GA OR SK To say goodbye, type GA OR SK. This gives the
other person a chance to say any last words before
ending the conversation.
SKSK
Type SKSK to end the conversation.
Q
Some people prefer to type Q instead of a question
mark because it saves time and is easier to type.
You can use punctuation marks such as commas and periods,
although many people choose to omit them. You may also
abbreviate words, such as:
GA
go ahead
OPR
