The Federal Communications Commission, FCC, wants the opinion of the Deaf and Hard of  Hearing community regarding the changes planned on the way the Video Relay Service is paid and provided. Recently, concerned about the TRS Funds usage among other issues,  the FCC decided to start a reform process and is seeking people like you to guide them in the process. Even though this is under a limited time opportunity to have a say in the matter,  please still make your comments today!

 

The information from the FCC is available in ASL,  English, and now it is also available in Spanish.

 

Gracias VRS noticed that the materials were only in English and conscious of the needs of the Latino community in the United States and Puerto Rico, asked the FCC to provide an accessible Spanish translation of the materials regarding the new reform. We would like to take the opportunity to express our thanks to the FCC commissioners who made the texts available for Spanish speaking individuals.

 

Access the following links below and see videos in ASL and English captions as to what the proposed VRS reforms are and why the FCC is considering these reforms.  Also we have provided the Spanish links in case you have someone who can benefit from those. Remember,  you can send your comments in English, Spanish and ASL. Do it now!
