US Senate passes massive improvement in Accessible Communications

When America sneezes we reach for the tissues!
On August 5 2010 the US Senate passed a bill
"Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010" in which vast improvements regarding provision of captions and accessibility of TV shows are enacted.

Check the item on the 
Coalition of Organizations for Accessible Technology [COAT] site

This will of course impact on TV, Video and Internet communications in Australia. The job's been done for channels 7, 9, 10.
