Michelle & List:
the message is hard coded for good reason.
asked British subjects if Skype can be used to call 999 in
the UK and Ulster or 112, 113 or 114, the numbers for
Police, Fire or Ambulance in the rest of the world without
influence from the UK, USA etc.
setting up cell towers, there is an option to have them
accept calls to 112 as well as 911. For several years, Siri
knew 112 but not 911. My friend in NYC said no idea who 112
will connect you to. I said if the phone rings foreign
style, tell whoever you have reached what you want, where
and if they ask if you are in New York, Yorkshire, say no,
the one with Kennedy International airport! Give them a
minute to call your 911 or type the message on their TELEX
and expect to hear the reassuring sound of responding sirens
responding from 30-blocks away in a minute or two.
misdirected reports from other police officers priority
if European/Asian/Australian cell towers accept calls to
someone recently asked me if
there is a way to prevent screen readers from telling this
message when opening Skype. I sincerely did not give
importance to this, I think it only means we cannot use
Skype for calling, say, 911 in the USA; am I wrong? And most
of all, what can you answer to my friend asking the above
