Obama Signs 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act

A new beginning started last week for disabled Americans when President Obama signed into law the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010.  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 new law updates existing law to ensure that newer technologies, such as Internet-based and mobile services, will be accessible by those with disabilities.
