Hello!
So, for some reason I cant find a good way to do this. I'm trying to keyframe the AV settings on a text layer. I just want to keyframe the AV setting (for the space between characters) to have all the characters on top of each other so I can keyframe that AV setting to spread out. Hope that makes sense. HA! Thanks guys!

it's not as intuitive as it could be...

select the text layer and choose animation>animate text>kerning...

this will add a text animator to the text layer. you'll use that to animate that property.

for more on the text animators see the manual:

That's odd. I 'see "Animate Text" anywhere in animate. Hmmmmmm.......
