In Case of Emergency: Tech Blog #3

We love it when technology benefits everyone and embraces the spirit of Universal Design that improve the lives of people of various abilities. On the Unlock screen of an Apple iPhone, there’s a feature that shows as “Emergency” in the bottom left of the screen. When you press “Emergency”, you can make an emergency call but also use a feature “*Medical ID” that provides info on who to call in case of emergency and an overview of your medical history. Click HERE for a good article from PC Magazine on how to set this up and thereby make everyone a little bit safer.
