The Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) was enacted to ensure that persons with disabilities have access to the innovative communications technologies of today; but while there has been much discussion about the captioning component of this law, how does it affect other types of communication devices?
Join Deque’s accessibility expert Brooks Newton October 15, at 2 PM EDT for a free webinar that will shed light on this important aspect of the CVAA.
Advanced Communications Services (ACS)
Under the law, ACS products such as VOIP, text messaging, email, IMs, and video conferences need to be made accessible. But what else might be covered? The law leaves open the definition of “new communication technologies” and our webinar will explore what this expanding scope could mean to you and your business.
