CEA Launches Enhanced Accessibility Working Group


The Consumer Electronics Association said Monday that it has launched a working group to develop standards for enhanced accessibility features in video devices.

“The video systems and home entertainment markets are driving forces behind the global success of the consumer technology industry,” Brian Markwalter, vice president of Research and Standards for CEA, said as part of the announcement.

“CEA's new working group will establish standards and recommended practices that will improve accessibility features in these devices and will ultimately lead to more innovative and user-friendly technology products that benefit the accessibility community and the CE industry as a whole.”
