Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
