A new Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Video Systems Committee working group will develop standards for enhanced accessibility features in video devices, and is seeking participation by designers, engineers, manufacturers, users with disabilities, and accessibility design specialists.

The group will initially focus on tactile feedback features of remote controls to assist in locating and distinguishing buttons and features on TV, recorder, audio, and other remote-controlled devices. Further projects may include standards surrounding accessibility issues in video devices – features critically important to consumers with visual or auditory impairments, for example.

“The video systems and home entertainment markets are driving forces behind the global success of the consumer technology industry,” said Brian Markwalter, vice president of Research and Standards for CEA. “CEA’s new working group will establish standards and recommended practices that will improve accessibility features in these devices and will ultimately lead to more innovative and user-friendly technology products that benefit the accessibility community and the CE industry as a whole.”
