The Field is Growing

Today President Obama signed the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010. I have referred to this bill as A Field of Dreams (posted on July 25, August 3) and it is safe to say this field is growing into a reality.

I love when two parties come together and agree on something very important to me --- and millions like me. Accessibility for all! Let's applaud our representatives in Washington for this one and let's embrace all that it promises to deliver.

Here's what I'm looking forward to:

  1. Required accessible onscreen cable television menus and program guides.
  2. Required accessible features for mobile devices.
  3. Required access to accessible Internet services built into mobile phones.
  4. Requires a clearinghouse of information on accessible products and services and public education and outreach.

I wonder if they can get those accessible cable TV menus up and running first --- I need to DVR Oprah!
