DTMF is an acronym for "dual-tone multifrequency" and is the system used
for touch tones.

Possibly the author of the page felt that hackers would know this and
non-hackers wouldn't.

It's so named because each touch tone is a chord of two simultaneous
pure tones added together, from a set of eight standardized frequencies.
