If you have a hearing or speech disability and want an alternative to TTY for communicating using wireless devices, you can use RTT. It uses a mix of text and voice.1
As a sender types a message on their device, text displays on the receiving device. RTT is great for everyday communication and is compatible with emergency calls just like TTY is today.2
Want to talk with someone with RTT or a TTY device? AT&T Real-Time Text uses our cellular network or Wi-Fi Calling to connect with users on networks that support this type of communication. As more carriers support RTT, you can talk to more people this way.
