What is Real-Time Text (RTT)?
Real-Time Text is text transmitted instantly while it is typed or created.
Recipients can immediately read the message while it is being
written, without waiting. This
provides continuous conversation flow in the same manner as speech,
where the recipient does not need to wait for the sender to finish
before reading. For more info, see
What is XMPP? Also called Jabber, an instant messaging standard,
"The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is an
open technology for real-time communication, which powers a wide
range of applications including instant messaging, presence,
multi-party chat, voice and video calls, collaboration,
lightweight middleware, content syndication, and generalized
routing of XML data." -
What is XMPP In-Band Real-Time Text? This is an
XMPP extension authored by Mark D. Rejhon, with assistance of key
people at realtimetext.org, in order to allow Real-Time Text to be
transmitted over existing Jabber/XMPP networks. It is useful as an
enhancement for mainstream instant messaging, real-time
transcription, captioning, as well as relay services. Apps and
websites can take advantage of this standard.
Where is it published? XMPP.org has
published this as XEP-0301 at
XMPP.org/extensions. The standard is free for everyone to use and develop,
and may also be used for any application, open and proprietary.

About the International Fast Text Symbol:
