Deaf 911

A voice for the voiceless

A few minutes can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency. But for 38.5 million individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, calling 911 presents a dangerous limitation.

Enter Deaf 911 – the first emergency mobile app that allows the deaf to call for help. Its unique application of speech-to-text and text-to-speech technology, combined with predictive analytics, allows the deaf to speak directly to 911. And it does it in just 30 seconds—roughly the same amount of time it takes hearing people to call for help.
