Friday, August 31, 2018 | Comments

The FCC announced an Oct. 2 workshop to educate public-safety answering points (PSAPs) on real-time text (RTT). The PSAP RTT Education Day will take place from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. EST at the FCC’s headquarters. The event is hosted with the assistance of the Commission’s Disability Advisory Committee (DAC).

The PSAP RTT Education Day will provide information to PSAPs and other emergency communications systems about RTT features and benefits for emergency response personnel and consumers, including consumers with disabilities; best practices for processing RTT requests from service providers; and ways to implement the RTT service feature. Among other things, panels will address regulatory policy, PSAPs’ experiences with RTT testing, and RTT infrastructure issues. There will be a live demonstration of the use of RTT and opportunities for interaction by and with the audience.

The event is open to the public, but admittance will be limited to available seating. The event also will be webcast with open captioning at www.fcc.gov/live.

On the day of the event, audience members may ask questions in person or by e-mail to livequestions@fcc.gov. The agenda, as well as presentation materials, will be available on the event webpage.
