as agreed in the avt wg in the IETF Oslo meeting. Comments are welcome to
the author at gunnar.hellstrom at or to the rem-conf at mail

This RTP payload is used by H.323 Annex G Text conversation and text SET


   This memo describes how to carry text conversation session contents
   in RTP packets. Text conversation session contents is specified in
   ITU-T Recommendation T.140 [1].

   Text conversation is used alone or in connection to other
   conversational facilities such as video and voice, to form multimedia
   conversation services.

   This RTP payload description contains an optional possibility to
   include redundant text from already transmitted packets in order to
   reduce the risk of text loss caused by packet loss. The redundancy
   coding follows RFC 2198.
