TTY is the current technology for
direct 9-1-1 accessibility

  • Fading from use in the deaf community

  • Many have a TTY ONLY for contact with 9-1-1

  • But no other text technology exists on plain old telephone network OR Voice over IP services

    • So it still must be supported along with POTs

    • But it’s not enough
