Using Real-time text (RTT) or TTY

Real-time text (RTT) is a feature that can make it easier for customers to carry on a live conversation through text (or text and simultaneous voice) during a call, with each text character transmitted immediately as it is typed. Unlike TTY, there’s no need for a separate device. The person you are calling must have either RTT or TTY enabled on their device for the text capability to work. If your device instead uses TTY (Text Telephony) and TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf) technology that allows similar text-based communications by telephone, you must have a TTY-compatible phone and be in the TTY mode to place or receive calls.
