Internet Closed Captioning Proposed Rules Published in Fed Reg – Comments Due Oct. 18; Replies due Oct. 28

Posted in Accessibility (Persons with Disabilities)

UPDATE: The FCC has extended the deadline for reply comments to November 1, 2011.  Press release is available here.

The FCC’s proposed rules for Internet closed captioning have been published in the Federal Register (available here), which means that the comment periods are set.  As we discussed in our earlier posting about the NPRM (here), the FCC has set very short deadlines for comments and replies, a reflection of the short time frame in which the FCC must adopt final rules (January 2012).  

Feel free to contact us for more information about the issues involved and how they may impact your business.
