National Association of the Deaf assures text-to-911 with lawsuit

Source – Tucson News Now (July 13th 2018)

The state of Arizona settled a 2016 lawsuit with the National Association of the Deaf and agreed to fund text-to-911 systems.

Text-to-911 allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have a speech impairment to summon emergency services and report crimes. As with other accommodations for people with disabilities, text-to-911 will also help others where it may be too dangerous to make a voice call to 911.
