Do you know if your student is taking E2EE into consideration as future work?
@vanitasvitae When full stanza encryption is available (omemo:1), nothing is to be done specifically for RTT to be encrypted.
@larma sensible 👍
Audio and even Video calls are far less convenient to deaf persons. For them having a realtime conversation in text may be extremely valuable.
There are also several other cases when audio isn't an option, like when you don't have a microphone or are in a very noisy environment. Think of RTT as calls just with text instead of audio.
@larma But they are just an enter key difference from regular texting..
@larma All the reasons you explained seem to hold for regular text chat, is what I mean to say.
@stevenroose Yes, that enter key is the reason why you can only start processing the message after it was send.
One major reason why phone calls are so much faster, is that you already process the sentence before it is finished.
Technically you could just press enter after every word, but that wouldn't be a great user experience.
