American blind left behind in digital TV transition

Thursday, 18 February 2010 09:18am

American Council of the Blind board member, Ray Campbell, claims that people with vision disabilities have been left behind due to 'idiots in Washington' who did not include accessibility issues in transition legislation and regulations for digital TV.'

Campbell, in a radio interview broadcasting from Chicago, explained how mainstream technology solutions such as using audio to navigate channel and remote controls with access features had not been adopted as part of the process.

Listen to the 45-minute interview from the WGN radio station's website.
