11B-704.4.1 Height.

When in use, the touch surface of TTY keypads shall be 34 inches (864 mm) minimum above the finish floor.  [S.H.  Height of TTY keypads not addressed by 2010 and earlier versions of CBC, or by 1991 ADAAG.]

Exception:  Where seats are provided, TTYs shall not be required to comply with Section 11B-704.4.1.

[2010 ADAS] Advisory 704.4.1 Height.  A telephone with a TTY installed underneath cannot also be a wheelchair accessible telephone because the required 34 inches (865 mm) minimum keypad height can causes the highest operable part of the telephone, usually the coin slot, to exceed the maximum permitted side and forward reach ranges. (See Section 308.)

Advisory 704.4.1 Height Exception.  While seats are not required at TTYs, reading and typing at a TTY is more suited to sitting than standing. Facilities that often provide seats at TTY's include, but are not limited to, airports and other passenger terminals or stations, courts, art galleries, and convention centers.
