On this episode of the ACB Advocacy Update, Clark celebrates Global Accessibility Awareness Day by speaking with Jeff Bishop, ACB Board Member, ACB Information Access Committee Chair, and all around nice guy. Clark and Jeff discuss how the landscape of accessible technology has changed over the past ten years with the passage of the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA). Not only the law that re-instated audio description requirements, the CVAA fostered accessibility requirements for communications hardware and software that is enabling people who are blind to work remotely from home, participate in ACB community events, and produce the first of it’s kind, ACB Virtual Conference and Convention!
Registration for the 2020 ACB Virtual Conference and Convention opens today, May 21, for ACB members, and May 28, for the general public; to learn more visit – www.acbconvention.org.
