Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Individuals of all ages and abilities can find themselves in a scary or stressful situation. Whenever individuals are in a critical situation, every second counts. The Red Panic Button app aims to make getting help even more accessible.

The Red Panic Button is available on both Android and Apple devices. Once it's downloaded and configured with your contacts, you'll be able to simply press the "Red Panic Button" and the app will automatically send an SMS containing your current location to your emergency contacts.

The app is free to download, but the paid version includes:
- No ads
- Emergency call
- Quick SMS response
- Panic voice, photo, and video messages
- Unlimited panic numbers
