What is unreliable and intermittent speech? First, a bit of explanation for those unfamiliar with these terms. Unreliable speech is when a person can speak but the words do not always match what the person is trying to say. But her speech becomes unreliable in certain situations, particularly with multiple choice questions.
This is how the test is typically done. Imagine a crisis situation with a person who can only repeat the last option given. Sometimes the inability to speak is due to illness or stress conditions often present during a crisis!
Sometimes even the person with intermittent speech does not know why they cannot speak sometimes. I have lived experience with being in crisis situations without the ability to speak.

The system is free to use. It's been six years since the friend said anything about the technology they were using, but they had a free account with NexTalk.
They said it took some time to get a number and activate it, but once that was done, they could make and take outgoing and incoming TTY calls on their computer with no problem.
Many smart phones have TTY services built into them now, however. To access TTY on other types of smart phones, Google your phone, read the manual, or consult with the store where you bought your phone.
In the past, TTS was expensive and required carrying around a heavy machine.
