Watch the video above to learn more about VRSCA’s efforts to ask the FCC to remember the communication needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing Americans.
The Video Relay Services Consumer Association (VRSCA) is a communication forum for Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing and hearing persons who use Video Relay Services (VRS).
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently launched a new support center that gives deaf callers the option to call the FCC directly from a videophone (VP) and talk directly with the FCC using American Sign Language. If you have questions, comments or complaints, you can call the FCC at 844-4-FCC-ASL (844-432-2275) between 10 a.m. and 5:30p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, except holidays. For more information, visit the FCC website: http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/disability-rights-office.
