Recently, President Obama signed into law the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010. The Act includes a number of provisions intended to increase access to video programming on television and the Internet, require access to the user interfaces used to access information online via smartphones, and require access to on-screen menus for DVD players and set-top boxes. You can read more about the Act and Adobe’s thoughts on it on the Adobe Accessibility blog.
We caught up with Andrew Kirkpatrick, group product manager for accessibility at Adobe, directly after he attended the signing event at the White House. Please check out the following video for Andrew’s thoughts on the Act and the event.
A transcript of the video is available in YouTube and in PDF here.
