NENA, which is the 9-1-1 Association, hosted the 5th Industry Collaboration Event, or "ICE 5", on the week of October 15, 2012.  The focus of this event was emergency services solutions that directly support access to the Next Generation 9-1-1 (aka NG9-1-1) system.  The event provided vendors the opportunity for end-to-end testing of new and developing technologies that will provide the widest possible access to emergency services for all individuals, including those with disabilities (e.g. deaf, hard-of-hearing, speech-impaired, etc.).  Voiceriver attracted a lot of attention as a participant demonstrating the functionality of the Voiceriver TTY / Text Gateway.
