Making Emergency Alerts Accessible for All


You can access the Settings screen at any time from the  Watch TV or Emergency pages.

The Settings screen includes a Watch TV or Emergency link which will take you back to your previous page. The Settings screen is divided into three sections: Braille Settings, Emergency Alerts Settings and About GoCC4All.

Braille Settings

There are four braille settings that the user can modify: Caption Duration, Line Size, Braille Mode and Braille Output. To change a setting, select the feature you want to modify, make the desired change and return  to the Settings screen by selecting “Settings”.

Caption Duration

Its the duration of a stream of captions on your display. The value varies between 1 and 10 seconds, being 4 seconds the default value. If the value is 1, you will be reading captions at the same pace that the captions are appearing on TV.

If you pick a setting that is greater than 1, you will have more time to read the captions on your display, however the captions will be delayed compared to the live broadcast.

To change this setting, select either the plus or minus sign in the Caption Duration screen. Every time you select plus or minus the duration will increase or decrease by 1 second.

Line Size

Line Size refers to the number of characters you would like your braille display to show at one time. The default value is 20 characters.

To change this setting, select either the plus or minus sign on the Line Size screen. Every time you select plus or minus the line size will increase or decrease by 1 character. 

Braille Mode

Turns braille mode on and off. By default, when the app first starts, Braille Mode is on. To disable Braille Mode, select off.


Braille Output

There are two options to choose from for Braille Mode: uncontracted six-dot braille (default), and uncontracted eight-dot braille.

Emergency Alert Settings

The menu for Emergency Alert Settings changes slightly depending on whether you are a registered user or not.

Unregistered Users
If you have not registered, there will be three settings that you can modify: Register, Location Services and Notifications.
Registered Users
If you have already registered, there will be four settings you can modify: Registration Information, Location Services, Notifications and Unregister.

Register & Registration Information Registration

Registering allows you to receive emergency alerts for your area. You will need to provide your first name, last name, date of birth, email and the email of an emergency contact. The emergency alerts services are only available for people 18 years of age or older. If the date of birth you provide is less than 18 years old, the app won’t allow you to register.

Below the emergency contact field, there are links to the app’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. You can also access both documents by going to About GoCC4All in the Settings Screen.

Once you have entered your registration information select Register to store your registration information.

If you have previously registered, you can modify your registration information by going to the Emergency Alert Settings and selecting Registration Information. Once you have made the changes to your information select Save.

Location Services

To receive emergency alerts, you need to turn on location services. GoCC4All will only use your location to deliver emergency alerts for the area where your are and to share it with your listed contact in case of an emergency. GoCC4All will not share your private location data with anyone without your consent.

To turn this setting on and off, toggle the switch.

To return to the Settings screen select " Settings".
