Sorry that last message was a little scatter-shot.  It would help to
know what parts you have in motion:

- is your carrier a traditional phone service or do you have/want a
  VoIP (voice-over-IP, that is internet-based) provider?

- Do you have existing TTY hardware you want to integrate and send
  messages via your Linux box, or do you want to use your Linux box
  as an interface to do your typing/reading?

Because I did see some other discussions about creating a simple box
(under $10 in parts, I'd guess) that would allow you to hook your
sound-card up to the regular phone-system which would let you (or
someone else) read and write sounds to that line.

Another link you might find interesting:

Hope some of this gives you what you need or at least points you in a
helpful direction,
