The Disabilities Rights Office, housed within the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), ensures that FCC actions and policies enable people with disabilities to have the same access as everyone else to telecommunications. FCC implements mandates for nationwide telephone relay services, accessibility, and usability of telecommunications wireline and wireless products and services. These services include hearing aid compatibility of phones, closed captioning of television programming, and accessibility of emergency information on television.
