Advocacy

Accessibility

As a member of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Disability Advisory Committee, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® supports industry-driven solutions and actively work with the accessibility community to ensure innovative tech is accessible to people with disabilities.

We believe federal regulations should balance the twin goals of improved accessibility and the flexibility to innovate. CTA is working with the FCC as the commission implements the 21st Century Video and Communications Accessibility Act of 2010.

CTA also worked with members of Congress to pass a bill making it easier for the millions of Americans suffering from mild to moderate hearing loss to get access to affordable solutions, such as over-the-counter hearing devices.

CTA Foundation
