At Verizon Wireless, we are committed to offering our customers the most reliable service on the nation's best wireless voice and data network, and providing accessible products and services that meet the communication needs of our customers with disabilities. Verizon Wireless provides a wide range of innovative solutions and technologies that increase accessibility to its products and services.
Verizon Wireless supports Voice Commands and Menu readout on a majority of our devices. Voice Commands provides the customer the ability to hear information that appears on their phone screen as well as dialing the phone by either saying a name contained in their phone book or saying the specific digits to the dialed. Menu readout allows the customer to hear the menu label and information under that menu instead of looking at it. Please note that in order to hear menu read out the phone setting for read out must be set. Learn more
Verizon Wireless has voluntarily worked with the public safety community to enable customers to send text messages to local 911 call centers. It’s important to remember that voice calls remain the best way to contact 911, as a phone conversation allows an emergency dispatcher to quickly gather important facts about your location and situation, talk you through any necessary steps, and offer a reassuring voice.
Can you text 911 if you are unable to call? Texting 911 may be an option, depending upon your location. You can check with your local public safety officials to learn if the local 911 center is prepared to accept text-to-911 messages. Public information lines, such as 211 or 311, also may have more information on text-to-911 service availability, and the FCC’s website maintains some information at www.fcc.gov/text-to-911.
When texting 911, keep the following in mind:
