Federal Communications Commission makes landmark decision, approves real time text (RTT) technology

Image:

Gallaudet University played a pivotal role in a recent landmark decision by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to phase out TTYs in order to transition to a new, internet-based, real-time text standard (RTT) compatible with future smartphones. RTT allows users to instantly see letters, characters, and words as they are being typed.

Learn more about this exciting new technology and find out when it will be implemented into new smartphones by watching this video with ASL, voice-over, captions, and voice-over audio descriptions: https://youtu.be/tfmAblNvr8E
