Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act

Published on 

In 2010, the passage of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) marked a significant update to the Communications Act of 1934, which had become outdated due to technological advancements. This legislation, signed into law by President Obama, was designed to ensure that the latest telecommunications technologies would be accessible to individuals with disabilities.

The CVAA is structured into two main sections:

  1. Title I – Communications Access
  2. Title II – Video Programming

The Act recognizes the importance of keeping accessibility standards in step with technological progress. It establishes specific guidelines for the kinds of communications technologies covered and outlines the accessibility features required, such as video descriptions and closed captioning.
