Alexa's Real Time Text Feature

Real Time Text is a feature that adds a live, real-time chat feed during Alexa calls, and Drop Ins made from Echo Show devices. When Real Time Text is on, a keyboard pops up on the screen, enabling customers to type text which appears in real time on both parties' screens. This feature makes it easier for customers with speech impairments, or for customers who are deaf or hard of hearing, to communicate with their contacts by typing during a call.
