Ed Price, co-director on the Wireless RERC’s App Factory project was recently featured on NPR’s Marketplace discussing with John Moe, host of Marketplace’s Tech Report, Verizon’s recent testing of a text-to-911 system in Durham, NC. During the radio segment Ed details some of the issues the text-to-911 solution faces, like how the 911 center currently does not know the exact location of the caller. However, he also states that while the solution is not yet complete, it could be used as an interim solution for the deaf or hard of hearing.
