Industry Applauds Obama Accessibility Bil
CTIA, Verizon Wireless and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski have lauded President Barack Obama’s passing of a bill that requires smartphones and other consumer
electronics be accessible to people with vision or hearing loss.
The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act includes a mandate that the web browsers, text messaging, and e-mail on smartphones be fully
accessible to people with vision or hearing loss and ensures that Internet-capable cell phones are compatible with hearing aids.
