President Obama Signs Twenty-first Century Communications & Video Accessibility Act

On October 8th, President Barack Obama signed into law the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010. The law is designed to ensure that Americans with disabilities can more fully participate in society and enjoy all that new technologies have to offer -- especially Internet-based and mobile services.

The new law will make it easier for people who are deaf, blind or have low vision to access the Internet, smart phones, television programming and other communications and video technologies. The law will also make sure that emergency information is accessible to individuals who are blind or have low vision. In addition, $10 million per year will be allocated from the Interstate Telecommunications Relay Service Fund for equipment used by individuals who are deaf or blind. For more information, read “What S.3304 Does For Us” (http://www.coataccess.org/node/9776) from the Coalition of Organizations for Accessible Technology.
