FAQ about deaf‑sos

Questions about deaf-sos and Emergency Call Services

Does deaf-sos works only at home or on the way, too?
Use deaf-sos with any cell pho­ne and it works all over the coun­try (GSM coverage nee­ded).

Do I need a spe­cial cell pho­ne?
deaf-sos works fine with near­ly every cell pho­ne (GSM band must be com­pa­ti­ble).

Does deaf-sos place an immedia­te tele­pho­ne call to emer­gen­cy ser­vices, or is the­re any delay in the call?
deaf-sos sup­ports immedia­te con­nec­tions to the nea­rest emer­gen­cy call ser­vice cen­ter. The­re is no delay and no relay inter­po­sed.

Does deaf-sos has its own emer­gen­cy call cen­ter?
No. deaf-sos sup­ports the natio­nal emer­gen­cy ser­vices (112 or 911) world­wi­de. Your emer­gen­cy call auto­ma­ti­cal­ly routs to the nea­rest dis­patch cen­ter.

Do I need a lega­liz­a­ti­on to use deaf-sos and natio­nal emer­gen­cy ser­vices?
Ever­y­bo­dy has the right to use natio­nal emer­gen­cy ser­vices world­wi­de without any spe­cial lega­liz­a­ti­on. deaf-sos assists the­se ser­vices to help you quick and safe.

How is it pos­si­ble, that works world­wi­de?
Hea­ring and spea­king peop­le can use natio­nal emer­gen­cy call ser­vices world­wi­de on con­di­ti­on that

1) they know the cor­rect emer­gen­cy call num­ber of local coun­try (in most cases 112 or 911),
2) they have a cell pho­ne with com­pa­ti­ble GSM band.
Deaf peop­le must meet the same requi­re­ments. Addi­tio­nal to that, 
deaf-sos is nee­ded to com­pen­sa­te speech impairment, and cell pho­ne must be able to send and recei­ve SMS*.

In other words: deaf-sos is not­hing less than an upgrade of Deaf’s emer­gen­cy call abi­li­ties to the level of hea­ring ones. It simu­la­tes the absence cha­rac­te­ri­stic, and speaks for the Deaf.

How easy is it for emer­gen­cy ser­vices to coope­ra­te with deaf-sos?
Dis­patchers don’t need any infor­ma­ti­on in advan­ce about the used alert system or the user. deaf-sos uses exact­ly the same com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on chan­nel as hea­ring peop­le do. That’s why Deaf attract atten­ti­on immedia­te­ly (no unno­ti­ced emer­gen­cy faxes any more!). In the pro­cess deaf-sos car­ri­es out a smooth chan­ge from spo­ken speech com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on to SMS* com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on, which is avail­ab­le for both, Deaf and dis­patcher. That’s the “geni­al­ly and revo­lu­tio­na­ry sim­pli­ci­ty” of deaf-sos.

Have you con­ta­c­ted every emer­gen­cy ser­vice cen­ter world­wi­de to tell them about ?
deaf-sos is the first glo­bal Deaf alert system, that works ful­ly self-explana­to­ry. The­re is no need to inform anyo­ne in advan­ce. Emer­gen­cy ser­vice cen­ter don’t need any spe­cial equip­ment and no expen­si­ve modi­fi­ca­ti­on is necessa­ry. To ans­wer an emer­gen­cy call from a Deaf, the ser­vice cen­ter only needs a simp­le cell pho­ne to con­ta­ct the Deaf via SMS*. That’s simp­le, easy and cost-effi­ci­ent. It works fine all over the world in coun­tries with GSM coverage.

Could I send the spo­ken emer­gen­cy mes­sa­ge to other pho­ne num­bers, too?
We don’t know other emer­gen­cy ser­vices, which gua­ran­ty you more pro­fes­sio­nal and per­fect help than the natio­nal 112/911 emer­gen­cy ser­vices. So we high­ly recom­mend to trust in the­se orga­niz­a­ti­ons. Alt­hough it is pos­si­ble to send your emer­gen­cy alert to any other pho­ne num­ber.

I use TTY for emer­gen­cy calls and it works good. Do I need deaf-sos?
Never chan­ge a run­ning system 😉 — be hap­py and tell others about your good expe­ri­en­ces. But ensu­re that your system runs all over your coun­try and the coun­tries you will tra­ve­ling in future, too. If you are not real­ly sure, we recom­mend to add deaf-sos to your emer­gen­cy equip­ment. Us only: Read the fol­lo­wing infor­ma­ti­on (FCC).
And think about this, too: Can you reach emer­gen­cy ser­vices all over the coun­try with only one num­ber (911 or 112)? If not, add deaf-sos to your pos­si­bi­li­ties. All over the world you need only one or two emer­gen­cy call num­bers: 112 or 911! It makes emer­gen­cy calls easy and safe, becau­se you must never search the cor­rect pho­ne num­ber to alert a life­s­aver! deaf-sos con­nects you auto­ma­ti­cal­ly to the nea­rest dis­patch cen­ter — that works fine world­wi­de 🙂
