What is the 21st Century CVAA?
The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) covers a range of requirements for making telecommunications services and video content accessible to handicapped users.
- The CVAA covers video programming previously captioned for television viewing, live video programming, and new video programming provided by or considered comparable to programming provided by multichannel programming distributors.
- The act also explores the need for online interfaces around the navigation of audiovisual interfaces to be accessible.
- Does not cover user-generated content (e.g., YouTube videos posted by individuals).
