ACTwireless believes that ALL American consumers should have equal access to affordable wireless communication in today’s rapidly-evolving marketplace.
Today, we benefit from wireless services like ride-sharing apps and video calling. But these groundbreaking innovations also have a major impact on the accessibility community.
Ride-hailing apps make travel a more independent and safe experience for low-vision and blind individuals. Video calling makes it possible for deaf individuals to communicate with sign language. Other apps can offer real-time speed to text during conversations, or provide captioning services for hard-of-hearing individuals during events, like Broadway shows.
To encourage the developments of new accessibility services and products, we support a positive regulatory environment, which is crucial to ushering in next-generation wireless—5G.
