Christian Vogler, Technology Access Program director, quoted by StarTribune

Christian Vogler, Gallaudet's Technology Access Program director was quoted in an article in Minnesota's StarTribune, after that state's authorities announced that “Text-to-911,” would go live.

According to the article, “Text-to-911,” enables deaf people to send a text message to 911 during an emergency when calling for help is not an option. The service went live Tuesday morning in Minnesota and provides a connection to emergency services for people who are deaf or unable to speak. It could also help crime victims caught in dangerous situations, such as home invasions, domestic assaults or active shooter incidents, in which speaking on the telephone could put them in greater danger.
