Ofcom consulted on introducing emergency video relay. This would allow British Sign Language users to contact the police, ambulance and fire services in BSL.
Many people, including deaf people and telecoms companies, told us they supported the idea. However, some issues have arisen including how to make sure that enough money is collected to pay for it. We are doing a short further consultation, and have made a BSL video.
The full consultation document in English is available.
