Recommendations to FCC on VRS Interoperability

The Telecommunications Access RERC (a partnership between the Trace Center and Gallaudet University) submitted comments to the Federal Communications Commission related to Telecommunications Relay Services and Speech-to-Speech Services for Individuals with Hearing and Speech Disabilities. The RERC recommends that the FCC set standards for video, audio, and text in relay services; permit the use of proprietary technologies as long as standard ones are also supported; require access to competing relay providers using established standards; and end the practice of blocking.
