Jim Edwards, Chair of UK Council on Deafness wrote to Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries in June, welcoming recent commitment to explore the improvement of broadcast access services for people with sensory loss in the Communications Green Paper.
A reply has been received
(see below) which states “The Government continues to be committed to making progress on the accessility and availability of access services, and the programme of work of the eAccessibility forum will continue”.
A series of policy seminars are being held during the next few months to shape and inform the Government’s communications review. Policy papers outlining the key questions each seminar will consider can be found at the DCMS website.
