Hope Yall can help,

There is a text preset called underscore that will do exactly what you want. It's in the text presets, but not sure under what category.

Might I also suggest using the "Character" window to set the color of your text to a luminous green and use "OCR A Std" font?

And if you want a blinking box to do the revealing, you could do worse than animating the reveal using the text animator property, then creating a solid the size of a single character and animating it to move position as the line of text reveals.

Animate the opacity of the solid to turn on and off repeatedly and voila!
