CVAA Legal Requirements for Video Programming

The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) dictates accessibility requirements for video programming. The CVAA requires video descriptions, closed captioning, and accessible guides for broadcast and cable programming, as well as closed captioning for any online video that previously appeared on television with captions. In addition, the FCC recently extended the captioning requirements of the CVAA to online video clips.
