What is RTT/TTY on iPhones?
RTT is an accessibility feature that lets you make and receive phone calls on your iPhone using text instead of voice. It is capable of converting voice to text and text to voice, and it looks like a text message on your end when you use this feature. The text of calls made using RTT/TTY is also stored and is available for searching and reading after the call ends.
When you make a call with RTT enabled, you have the option of making an RTT/TTY call instead of a regular voice call. If your carrier supports it, calling this way allows you to enter text in the message field during the call, and the system reads that text to the person you called. Their answers are automatically transcribed into text and displayed on the screen where you can read and respond.
RTT/TTY doesn’t require any additional hardware on iPhones, but if you have a physical teletypewriter device, you can attach one.
Who is RTT for?
Since RTT/TTY is a standard feature on iPhones and doesn’t require any additional hardware or accessories, it is available to everyone. However, this feature is specifically designed for iPhone users who are deaf, hard of hearing, have difficulty speaking, or who cannot speak at all. These users will typically need to make and receive calls using telecommunications equipment for the deaf (TDD) or teletypewriter (TTY) to call, or rely on text-based methods of communication such as SMS.
