Currently around 800.000 people live in the European Union without an effective way to contact the emergency number 112: people with hearing loss. Partially hearing-impaired also suffer, having difficulties understanding dispatchers.
The Emergency App team is preparing an app designed for this user group, where the user would describe an emergency situation by clicking through a sequence of specially prepared, intuitive icons. After that, the app contacts 112 and reads a generated voice message to a dispatcher.
They’re looking for a €95.000 investment for their MVP.
