FCC Updates: Video Description of Television Programs
Video description is audio-narrated descriptions of a television programâs key visual elements. These descriptions are inserted into natural pauses in the programâs dialogue. Video description makes TV programming more accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired. On August 25, 2011, the FCC adopted rules to implement the video description provisions of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA). These rules are effective as of July 1, 2012.

Â I just wanted to tell you that I got my Uncle Henry Knife in the mail today. I sure do appreciate the fast service. I misplaced or lost mine last week. I had that knife for 32 years. I think I put it on the back of my wife's car and it fell off between the house and town about 10 miles up the road. I have looked until I was blue. That knife was like my best friend.
Â The knife I bought from you is so close to what I had that it is almost like I never lost it. I also think the good things you all do make the purchase if more important than getting another knife.
Â I will be dealing with you all more in the future.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Sincerely,
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Mike Richardson

âI congratulate President Obama for taking some time today to remember the 19th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. There is no place in our society for prejudice of any kind, yet it was not that long ago when Americans with disabilities were often not given equal rights and opportunities. Whether the cause was ignorance or indifference, it was not acceptable. We can all take pride in how much the ADA has accomplished, which is evident every time you attend a sporting event, ride the subway, or go to work. Yet, there is always more to be done, which is why itâs good not only to celebrate our successes, but to look forward at what still must be done. As long as we never forget that every life is a miracle and each person has something to contribute, we will finish the job.â - Statement from Former President George H.W. Bush on the Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act - July 24 2009.
