What is CVAA (Communications and Video Accessibility Act)?

The Communications and Video Accessibility Act was established on October 8, 2010, to guarantee that people with disabilities have access to the innovative communications innovations of the 21st Century. The CVAA updates federal communications law to build the access of people with disabilities to present-day communications. The CVAA ensures that accessibility laws enacted in the 1980s and 1990s are brought up to date with 21st-century technologies, including new computerized, broadband, and portable innovations.
