May 18 is Global Accessibility Access Day.
The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.
Accessing 911 emergency services is important for everyone including people who have communication difficulties including hearing and speaking.
Text with 9-1-1 (T9-1-1) is a free-of-charge service that allows deaf or hard of hearing users as well as those who have difficulty speaking, to communicate with a 9-1-1 call centre in the form of text messaging, also known as Short Message Service (SMS).
For more information about T9-1-1 service availability, compatible mobile phones, eligibility rules, how to register and how to make a T9-1-1 call, please contact your mobile service provider.
