macOS-10-14-2

The iOS 12.1.1  brings support for the real-time text (RTT) protocol to Wi-Fi calling, while macOS 10.14.2 brings it to the Mac.

Real-time text is an accessibility standard that allows users to communicate in literal real-time. This means that as you type message, the other user can see that message. Instead of the normal typing indicator platforms like iMessage support, RTT shows the message’s text as you are composing it.

The feature is designed for users who are hard of hearing or have other impairments that make traditional audio calls challenging.

On iOS, you can set up real-time text by doing the following:

  • Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > RTT/TTY.
  • Enable Software RTT/TTY. Once enabled, you’ll see a new icon in the status bar.
  • Enable “Send Immediately” to have characters send as you type.

rtt1

  • Open the Phone app
  • Navigate to the contact of the person you wish to call
  • Choose the “RTT Call” or “RTT Relay Call” option
  • Once the call connects, select RTT

On macOS, you can set up real-time text by doing the following:

  • Open the System Preferences app
  • Click Accessibility
  • Select RTT in the sidebar
  • Check the box next to “Enable RTT”
  • Enable “Send Immediately” to have characters send as you type.

  • Use either the FaceTime app or the Contacts app to find the person you want to call

  • Or in FaceTime, click the audio button then choose “RTT Call” or “RTT Relay Call”
  • Once the call is answered, click RTT to start communicating via text.
