HLAA Weighs in on Accessible Information Technology

Tue, 06/02/2015

HLAA filed comments in the Access Board’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on information technology (IT) under Section 255 of the Communications Act of 1934 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Our comments were filed with Telecommunications for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (TDI), National Association of the Deaf (NAD), UITA-RERC AND RERC-TA at Trace R&D Center, and RERC-TA at Gallaudet University. Our comments covered IT as it impacts people with hearing loss, including Real-Time Text display, magnetic coupling, minimizing interference between hearing devices and other technologies, user controls for captions, and other related issues. Many thanks are due to Gregg Vanderheiden at Trace for his drafting skills on the filed comments.
