Roosevelt and Churchill used an extremely sophisticated telephone encryption system, SIGSALY, to communicate during WWII. In fact, they did not use it all the time because apparently it changed the voices a lot.
At the time, teletypes with automatic encryption existed. They were much easier to build and handle than SIGSALY.
Wouldn't it have been an alternative to have a quick typist on both sides, so that Roosevelt and Churchill could communicate as in a modern-day online chat?
