There is no "type of people". Anybody, for any reason, at any time and
anywhere, might need a helping hand. If they need to see a human face
and they have a webcam, let them contact Lifeline with vision. If they
don't, let them use whatever tech they have. The main thing, the all
important thing, is that someone answers.

No-one *has* to use vision. Turn the camera away, turn it off, hang a
hanky over it, pull the plug, sit in the dark - whatever. The audio will
still work.
