Abstract
Comments to the FCC's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on access to emergency services through telecommunications relay services. Recommendations to ensure access to 9-1-1 emergency calling for users of VRS and IP text relay services. As the number of TTY/landline subscribers decreases their access to 9-1-1 emergency calling services is endangered.
