Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Title IV: Telecommunications
Title IV requires that telephone companies provide telecommunication relay services that allow individuals with hearing or speech impairments to communicate using a TTY or other non-voice device. Relay services may be accessed by dialing 7-1-1.
Title IV also requires that all television public service announcements produced or funded in whole or in part by the Federal government include closed captioning.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enforces Title IV of the ADA.
