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
Dr. Robert H. Weitbrecht,
possible to build advanced microcomputer 1920–1983, inventor of
the first TTY modem.
devices like your new Ultratec text
telephone, the Weitbrecht modem remains
the major technological breakthrough 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
General safety
Save these instructions!
When using your Superprint 4425 and LVD, always follow these basic
safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to
persons.
1. Read and understand all instructions.
2. Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the Superprint 4425
and LVD.
3. Unplug the Superprint 4425 and the LVD from the wall outlet
before cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp
cloth for cleaning.
4. Do not use the Superprint 4425 or the LVD 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 Superprint 4425 or the LVD on an unstable cart,
stand, or table. The unit may fall, causing serious damage to the
Superprint 4425 or the LVD.
6. The Superprint 4425 and the LVD 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
Superprint 4425 or the LVD where the cord will be damaged by
persons walking on it.
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
Superprint 4425 or LVD. Take them to a qualified service person
when service or repair is required. Opening or removing covers may
expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect re-assembly
can cause electric shock when the unit is used again.
10. Avoid using a telephone (except a cordless type) during an electrical
storm. There is a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
4 • 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
11. Unplug the Superprint 4425 and LVD 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 Superprint 4425 or LVD.
c. If the Superprint 4425 or the LVD has been exposed to rain or
water.
d. If the Superprint 4425 or LVD does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls,
that are covered by the operating instructions because improper
adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often
require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the
Superprint 4425 or LVD to normal operation.
e. If the Superprint 4425 or LVD has been dropped and/or damaged.
f. If the Superprint 4425 or LVD exhibits a distinct change in
performance.
12. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the
leak.
13. Ultratec recommends plugging your Superprint 4425 and LVD into a
surge-protected outlet. This will protect the equipment 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
Features
Welcome to the Superprint 4425™ TTY from Ultratec. Your new TTY
has the following special features:
A ring flasher that tells you when someone is calling.
Turbo Code® communication protocol. This feature transmits signals
to other Turbo Code TTYs as fast as you type. Turbo Code also lets you
interrupt the other person’s typing.
Auto ID™ alerting system. Auto ID automatically alerts the answering
party that you are calling by TTY.
The relay voice announcer sends a voice message saying, “Please use
text telephone or dial relay,” followed by your relay service number.
Other features that make calling quick and easy are the following:
● Normal, bold, or wide print sizes.
● Auto-answer answers calls while you are gone and plays back
messages when you return or when you call from another TTY.
● Call progress shows ringing or busy status of the telephone line.
● Keyboard dialing from the keyboard or memory, and redialing of
the last number called.
● Call transfer, conference calling, and credit card calling.
● 32k memory—enough to save hundreds of memos and telephone
numbers.
● Automatic printing of the date and the time on
conversations and auto-answer messages.
● An extra telephone jack for a signaler or telephone.
● Sticky keys, a feature that allows typing with only one finger if
necessary.

SETUP
All you need to do to set up the Superprint 4425 and Large Visual
Display (LVD) is plug them in. You must plug in the Superprint 4425
AC adapter for at least 24 hours to charge the batteries. The ring flasher
will not work properly until the batteries are fully charged. After that,
leave both AC adapters plugged in all the time unless you need to use
batteries during a power outage or while traveling. (The LVD does not
have a battery and can only be used with the AC adapter.)
The best way to use the Superprint 4425 is to plug in a telephone line.
This is called direct connect. But if you cannot plug in a telephone line,
you can also make and answer calls by putting a telephone handset in the
Superprint 4425 acoustic cups.

Plugging in power, a telephone line and the
LVD
Be sure to pull the plastic tab out of the battery compartment under the
Superprint 4425 before you plug in the AC adapter.
Caution! The Large Visual Display (LVD) comes with its own AC
adapter. Do not mix up the Superprint 4425 and LVD adapters. If you
plug the Superprint 4425 adapter into the LVD, you will damage the
LVD. If you plug the LVD adapter into the Superprint 4425, you will
damage the Superprint 4425.
Do not plug the Superprint 4425 into any line other than a standard
analog telephone line. If you do, you may damage your telephone
system or the Superprint 4425, and you will void your warranty.
LVD Adapter – The
LVD adapter is smaller,
heavier, almost square,
and has a smooth black
surface. It has no label.

SETUP • 11
The picture on the previous page shows how to set up for direct connect
use. Direct connect means that the telephone line is plugged directly into
the Superprint 4425. You do not need a telephone. When you use direct
connect, you can dial directly from the keyboard and use auto-answer.
You can also connect by putting a telephone handset in the acoustic cups
if for some reason you cannot plug a telephone line into the Superprint
4425. See Acoustic calling and answering on page 28 for more
information.
Charging the batteries
The AC adapter supplies electricity to the Superprint 4425 and charges
the batteries. Leaving the AC adapter plugged in will not harm the
Superprint 4425 or the batteries.
Leave the AC adapter plugged in for 24 hours to charge the batteries
when you set up your Superprint 4425. You can use the Superprint 4425
at the same time. Fully-charged batteries will provide 45 to 60 minutes
of normal use. For more information on using battery power, see About
the batteries on page 75.
What kind of telephone line?
When the telephone line is directly connected to the Superprint 4425,
you need a standard (analog) telephone line with either pulse or tone
dialing. If you plan to use the Superprint 4425 in an office, the line may
need modification because many offices have digital telephone systems.
Contact your telephone installer to insure your line supports a standard
single-line telephone. This is the same kind of line you need for many fax
machines or computer modems.
Setting pulse or tone dialing
Your Superprint 4425 comes set for tone dialing, which is used by most
telephone lines. If your line uses pulse dialing, make sure the Superprint
4425 is set to use pulse dialing. For more information, see Setting pulse
dialing on page 66.
12 • SETUP
Connecting a signaler or telephone
The Superprint 4425 has an extra jack for a telephone or a signaler. You
can use either jack for the telephone line.
About the control key
Ctrl
The control key, Ctrl , gives instructions to the Superprint 4425 when you
hold it down and press a function key. Most of the function keys are on
the top row of the Superprint 4425. See Superprint 4425 function
keys on pages 16–18 for a complete list.
You must hold down the Ctrl key while pressing the other key. For
example, to dial, hold down the Ctrl key while you press the 1 key.
When you use a function, you can use the escape key
whatever you are doing and save changes.

About Auto ID
™
The Auto ID feature alerts a hearing person that you are calling from a
TTY. It alerts the person by sending several audible tones over the
telephone line every few seconds. Auto ID helps emergency services such
as 911 detect that you are calling by TTY. Auto ID is not the same as
Caller ID, a separate service available through your telephone service
provider that requires additional equipment.
Auto ID comes on when you turn on your Superprint 4425 and continues
until you start a conversation. If you are on-line, you will see SENDING
AUTO ID on the display every time the Superprint 4425 sends out
tones.
Auto ID will also begin sending tones whenever no one types for a few
minutes during a conversation. It continues until someone starts typing.
Turning off Auto ID
Ctrl
+
9
You can turn off Auto ID by following these steps:
1. Press the options key ( Ctrl + 9 ). You will see PRINT (UP/LOW)
CASE on the display.
2. Press the Return key until you see AUTO ID (ON) on the display.
3. Press the Spacebar to change the setting to AUTO ID (OFF).
4. Press the Esc key to save the new setting and leave options.
Note: When you turn off Auto ID, it stays off and will not send tones
until you turn it on again. This means that an emergency service center
such as 911 cannot use Auto ID tones to detect your TTY call.

Dialing tips
You may need to type a 9 or other number to reach an outside line if you
are using the Superprint 4425 in an office. The exact method of dialing
will depend on your local telephone system. Dialing a TTY call should be
the same as dialing a voice call.
Use a comma to put in a one-second pause. For example: 9,222 5555.
For long distance, include a 1 and the area code.
Use an ! for a hook flash. A hook flash is used in a voice mail system or to
transfer a call.
You cannot use * and # with pulse dialing.

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 at any time during a conversation. The Superprint 4425
automatically connects in Turbo Code or Baudot code, depending on
which code the other TTY is using. It 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 (example: @ # % ^ & * _ < >). These characters will
also work in ASCII. If your call is connected in Baudot, these characters
can not 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 know you are connected in Turbo Code if a dot appears in the lower
left corner of the TTY display.
This is how the Turbo Code dot looks on the display.
Turning Turbo Code on and off
Ctrl
+ Shift + B
You can switch to Baudot code at any time by pressing Ctrl + Shift + B . The
Superprint 4425 will return to using either Turbo Code or Baudot code
when you turn the unit off.
Using Turbo Code interrupt
Ctrl

You can interrupt the other person when he or she is typing by following
these steps:
1. Be sure you see the Turbo Code dot in the lower left corner of your
TTY display.
2. Press the interrupt key ( Ctrl + I ) while the other person is typing.
You will see INTERRUPT REQUESTED on the display.
CALLING • 29
3. The other person will see INTERRUPT on his or her display. He or
she can choose to stop typing and let you go ahead or ignore your
interruption and continue.
If you see INTERRUPT on your display while the ring flasher flashes, it
means that 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
yourself. You may also see INTERRUPT on your display even when you
are not connected in Turbo Code if the other person taps the spacebar a
few times.
Turning off Turbo Code interrupt

How auto-answer works
The Superprint 4425 answers a call by sending the relay voice announcer
message and the outgoing auto-answer memo.
The relay voice announcer message says, “Please use text telephone or dial
relay.” It also adds a relay number if you have saved one. See Using the
relay voice announcer on page 36 for more information about the
relay voice announcer message.
The auto-answer memo is a short text message which says, “You have
reached an answering machine, please leave a message, GA.” You can
change this message to say anything else you want or you can choose any
of your other memos to use as your out-going auto-answer memo.
If the caller leaves a TTY message, the Superprint 4425 saves the
message, prints it if the printer is on, and adds 1 to the number of
messages. The Superprint 4425 hangs up after 45 seconds of silence.
Note: Auto-answer cannot record voice messages.
About auto-answer memory
Auto-answer memory has enough room for at least 100 short messages.
The only limit to the number of auto-answer messages that can be saved
is the size of auto-answer memory, which is 22,000 characters.
If the memory does fill up, MESSAGE MEMORY FULL is added to the
last message and no more messages are saved. The Superprint 4425 will
still answer the telephone when memory is full if the printer is on. It will
still count messages and print them. If auto-answer memory fills up and
the printer is off, the Superprint 4425 stops answering the telephone.

MEMOS
A memo is a short message that you save in the Superprint 4425 memory
and later send to someone during a conversation. Examples of memos are:
● The auto-answer memo that the Superprint 4425 sends out when you
are away.
● The greeting memo that you can send when you answer the
telephone.
● The memo that you create when you save a conversation.
● A memo that contains a message, perhaps about an upcoming
meeting, that you want to send to several people.
There is no limit to the number of memos you can save as long as the
total number of characters in all memos and directory entries is less than
9,500. Each memo must have a different name.

CARE & REPAIR
Ordinary care of your Superprint 4425 requires changing the printer
paper when the paper runs out and replacing the batteries when they no
longer hold a full charge. If you have any other problems, you may be
able to solve them by reading the troubleshooting section.
Besides the printer paper and battery compartments, the Superprint 4425
and LVD have no other user-serviceable parts. Any repair work should be
done by a qualified service person. If you try to repair the units yourself,
you may damage the Superprint 4425 or the LVD and you will void your
warranty. The repair section explains how to get help.

About the batteries
The Superprint 4425 uses batteries when you unplug the AC adapter or
the power fails. Fully-charged, the six AA rechargeable NiCad batteries
will provide 45 to 60 minutes of normal use.
When the power light blinks, you have about 5 minutes of power left.
The batteries will last longer if you turn off the printer.
Checking the batteries
The batteries lose their ability to hold a full charge if you keep the
Superprint 4425 plugged in all the time. If you want to be sure the
batteries stay fully-charged, check them once a month. Follow these steps
to check the batteries:
1. Unplug the Superprint 4425 AC adapter.
2. Turn on the Superprint 4425 for 30 minutes. (You can still use it for
calls during this time).
3. The batteries are fine if the power light still glows steadily after 30
minutes. If the power light blinks within 30 minutes, exercise the
batteries.
4. Plug the Superprint 4425 AC adapter back in and turn off the unit.
Exercising the batteries
1. Leave the Superprint 4425 on with the Superprint 4425 AC adapter
unplugged until the power light flashes.
2. Turn the unit off and plug in the Superprint 4425 AC adapter for 24
hours (you can use the Superprint 4425 for calls during this time).
3. Unplug the Superprint 4425 AC adapter and leave the Superprint
4425 on for 30 minutes.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 until the power light glows steadily after 30
minutes without the AC adapter.
C A R E & R E PA I R • 7 5
Replacing the batteries
Replace the batteries every two or three years, or when they run down in
less than 30 minutes and exercising them does not help. Use only AA
NiCad rechargeable batteries. Turn over the Superprint 4425 and follow

Troubleshooting
Direct connect
Dialing does not work.
Make sure you have the right tone or pulse setting for your telephone
system.
The display says NO DIRECT CONNECT.
The Superprint 4425 is not properly connected to the telephone line. Be
sure the cord is firmly plugged into the Superprint 4425 and the
telephone wall jack. You can also try using a different telephone cord or
wall jack.
Poor reception
The display shows all numbers, symbols, or unreadable
characters instead of words.
Press the Spacebar . If that does not help and you have a Turbo Code
connection, try changing from Turbo Code to Baudot code. Hold down
the Ctrl and Shift keys and press the B key to change to Baudot code.
An incoming message does not make sense.
If you have a handset in the acoustic cups, press it firmly. The telephone
connection may be weak or the other TTY may be sending the wrong
signals. If you are using Baudot code, press the sensitivity key (hold
down the Ctrl key and press the S key). The display says HIGH
SENSITIVITY. Sensitivity returns to normal when you press the
sensitivity key again or when you turn off the Superprint 4425.
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
(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 29).

CODES
The standard code setting for the Superprint 4425 is automatic. With
this setting, the Superprint 4425 will use either Baudot code, Turbo
Code, or ASCII code to answer calls, depending upon which code the
other TTY uses. When you make a call using the standard setting, the
Superprint 4425 will automatically connect in Turbo Code or Baudot
code.
If you do not want the Superprint 4425 to automatically choose which
code to use, you can set the Superprint 4425 to use a specific code all the
time by following the instructions in this chapter.

CODES • 81
Setting the Baudot code baud rate
Ctrl
+0
The Superprint 4425 is set to use whichever code it needs to answer a
call, but you can set the unit so that it will only use Baudot code. When
you do, the Superprint 4425 will not try to use other codes. Follow these
steps:
1. Press the code key ( Ctrl + 0 ). You will see CODE (AUTOMATIC) on
the display.
2. Press the Spacebar to change the setting to BAUDOT.
3. Press the Return key. You will see BAUDOT (AUTO) BAUD on the
display.
4. Press the Spacebar to choose one of the following settings:
● AUTO to automatically use either 45.5 baud or Turbo Code. This
setting will use Turbo Code if the other machine is equipped with
Turbo Code.
● 45 to use only 45.5 baud Baudot. Most Baudot TTYs use 45.
● 50 to use only 50 baud Baudot. TTYs purchased in Australia,
New Zealand, or South Africa use 50 baud.
5. Press the Return key. You will see BAUDOT CODE ON on the
display.
Both the code and the Baudot baud rate return to automatic when you
hang up or turn off the Superprint 4425.
ASCII code
Ctrl
+0
ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Some TTYs and all computers in the United States and Canada use
ASCII code. If you use ASCII, you may need to change some options. The
options you can change are as follows:
Originate/answer determines which machine is calling and which one
is answering. This usually happens automatically. If the connection is
difficult to make, you can change the option yourself. The default is
originate.
Baud rate is how fast characters travel. You can choose 110 or 300
baud, but 110 is rarely used. The default baud rate is 300.
82 • CODES
Duplex controls how characters are displayed. If you get double
characters (lliikkee tthhiiss) or none at all, change the option between
half duplex and full duplex. The default is half duplex.
Parity controls error-checking. You can choose 7N1, 8N1, 7E1, or 7O1.
The first number is data bits. The middle letter means (N)o parity,
(E)ven parity, or (O)dd parity. The last number is stop bits. 8N1 and 7E1
are used most often. The default is 8N1 parity.
Return determines what the Superprint 4425 sends when you press the
Return key. You can choose CR or CR/LF. CR (carriage return) goes to the
beginning of the current line. CR/LF (carriage return plus line feed) goes
to the beginning of the next line. The default is CR.
To connect your Superprint 4425 with a computer, the other person
should use 300 baud, half duplex, 8N1 parity, and CR settings.
Turning on ASCII code and changing options
The Superprint 4425 is set to automatically use the code it needs to
answer a call, but you can set the unit to only use ASCII code at any
time. When you do, the Superprint 4425 will not try to use other codes.
Follow these steps to turn on ASCII code:
1. Press the code key ( Ctrl + 0 ). The display says CODE
(AUTOMATIC).
2. Press the Spacebar to change the setting to ASCII.
3. Press the Esc key to use the current ASCII options or press the Return
key to change options.
Use the following keys to change settings:
The Spacebar chooses a setting.
The Return key continues to the next setting.
The Esc key saves the option and returns to your conversation.
The code always returns to automatic when you hang up or turn off the
Superprint 4425.
CODES • 83
Changing ASCII seek time
Ctrl
+
9
This option sets the length of time during which the Superprint 4425
sends out an ASCII seek tone. The normal TTY seek time is three
seconds. You may need more time if you often connect to computers. Six
seconds is recommended. Follow these steps to change the setting:
1. Press the options key ( Ctrl + 9 ). You will see PRINT (UP/LOW)
CASE on the display.
2. Press the Return key until you see ASCII SEEK TIME (3) on the
display.
3. Type a number to change the setting to 0 or any number of seconds
between 2 and 9.
4. Press the Esc key to leave options.
Note: Selecting zero will turn off ASCII code and your Superprint 4425
will not try to use it even if the other TTY is using ASCII code.
Making an ASCII call
An ASCII conversation begins when your TTY code option is set to
ASCII originate, and the person you call answers in ASCII code. If you
are having problems connecting in ASCII code, see Turning on ASCII
code and changing options on page 83 or Changing ASCII seek
time above for more information.
Answering an ASCII call
When the code setting is automatic and someone calls using ASCII code,
your Superprint 4425 answers in ASCII code. If it cannot make an ASCII
connection, it changes to Baudot.
During an ASCII call
If you do not receive a clear message during an ASCII call, try:
● Changing the parity setting
● Changing the duplex option
● Using the other baud rate (110 or 300)
84 • CODES
If the code option is set to automatic and your Superprint 4425 loses the
ASCII connection, the Superprint 4425 will display NO ASCII
CONNECTION! and change to Baudot code. To return to ASCII code,
you must turn on ASCII yourself. See Turning on ASCII code and
changing options on page 83.
If the code option is set to ASCII and your Superprint 4425 loses the
connection, it waits until the other person changes to ASCII or you
change the code option setting to automatic or Baudot with the code key
( Ctrl + 0 ).

USING AN
EXTERNAL
PRINTER
You can use the LVD connector on the back of the Superprint 4425 to
connect a parallel (Centronics-type) printer instead of the LVD. Follow
these steps to change the printer setting if you use an external printer:
1. Press the options key ( Ctrl + 9 ). You will see PRINT (UP/LOW)
CASE on the display.
2. Press the Return key until you see PRINTER (INTERNAL) on the
display.
3. Press the Spacebar to change the setting to EXTERNAL.
4. Press the Esc key to save the setting and leave options or press the
Return key to save the setting and go to the next option.
Note: When you change the Printer option to external, the next two
options, Print Size and LVD, will not be displayed because they do not
apply to using an external printer.
USING AN EXTERNAL PRINTER • 87
STICKY KEYS
Ordinarily, when you use the Ctrl or Shift keys, you must hold down either
key while you press another key. If you have trouble pressing two keys at
one time, the sticky keys feature lets you use the Ctrl and Shift keys by
pressing one key at a time.
Press either Shift key five times to turn on sticky keys. You will see
STICKY KEYS ON on the display.
Now you can dial by pressing the Ctrl key and then pressing the 1 key.
You do not need to hold down the Ctrl key. Or, you can type a $ by
pressing the Shift key and then the 4 key.
When sticky keys is on, you can also lock down the Ctrl key or the Shift
key so that it affects every key you press after that until you unlock it. To
lock the Ctrl key or the Shift key, press the key twice. To unlock, press the
key one more time.
For example, to read conversation memory, press the Shift key twice to
lock it. Press the
key to move backward through memory. Press the
key to move forward. Press the Shift key once more to unlock it.
Press either Shift key five more times to turn off sticky keys. The display
says STICKY KEYS OFF.
If you use sticky keys all the time, you do not need to turn it on each
time you turn on the Superprint 4425. After you turn on the sticky keys
feature, it stays on until you turn it off or reset the unit.

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
SK
CD
CUL
CUZ
