Request for Relay Call Applications to be Made Compatible with Firefox OS for Use on Firefox OS Phones.

Currently, there are NO relay programmes of VRS (Video Relay Service) or TRS (Text Relay Service) services that will work on Firefox OS phones.  I have contacted Sprint and Purple Communications relay for deaf and hard of hearing companies in request that that be be made of applications by them to work on Firefox OS.  However, if they will do so is the question.  :(  Not sure they will.  But, I would like to be able to test and use relay on Firefox OS cus I am hard of hearing, myself, and I would like to test relay on Firefox OS, as well, once it is all done so that I can help in the development of relay apps for deaf and hard of hearing on Firefox OS.  The VRS apps need access to the reverse camera feature that Samsung Android and Firefox OS phones both have.  IF Firefox OS can have the relay apps be compatible, then hearing impaired users might be more inclined to also get Firefox OS phones.  If allowed, I would like to build that app if those relay companies will allow me to build those apps to make additional relay apps for their companies compatible with the Firefox OS.  If they won't allow this but are willing to build the apps, themselves, then is just as good.  :)  I just request that having these types of aps be allowed, and if not just me, but someone else, too, from Mozilla be allowed to speak with the relay companies to ask them if they will allow for the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript type apps be allowed to be done so that they can have a relay app for deaf and hard of hearing that is ALSO compatible with Firefox OS phones.
