Change RTT settings for accessibility on Mac
On your Mac, use RTT settings to set up your Mac to make and receive Real-Time Text (RTT) calls.
To change these settings, choose Apple menu > System Settings, click Accessibility in the sidebar, then click RTT on the right. (You may need to scroll down.)
Note: These settings are shown only when you have set up your iPhone and Mac for Wi-Fi calling and RTT phone calls are enabled on your iPhone. Wi-Fi calling and RTT are not available in all countries or regions, or supported by all carriers.
Make and receive RTT calls on your Mac without using a special device.
When this option is turned on and you make a phone call on your Mac, you can choose to use audio, RTT, or RTT relay for the call.
Send characters as you type them.
To type full messages before you send them, turn this option off.
RTT relay number
The relay service to use when you make an RTT relay call on your Mac.
If a number isn’t specified, your carrier’s default relay service is used.
When RTT phone calls are enabled on your Mac, the RTT button is shown in Contacts when you move the pointer over a contact’s phone number to indicate that you can make an RTT call. Depending on your network environment, an RTT call may be downgraded to a TTY call.
Important: When making an emergency call in the U.S. on your Mac, special characters or tones are sent to alert the operator. The operator’s ability to receive or respond to these tones can vary depending on your location. Apple doesn’t guarantee that the operator will be able to receive or respond to an RTT call.
