New Regulations for Televised Emergency Messages
A blurred photo shows an older television on a table with a lit screenThe Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has new rules regarding accessibility to televised emergency notices such as severe weather alerts or school cancelations. The rules state that all scrolling text must be audible for the visually impaired and all audible messages must also be written for those with hearing impairments.
 
The new rules come in to effect on November 30th but some television stations are having trouble comprehending what exactly is required of them. One of the worries is that to read aloud some of the scrolling emergency text messages will take much longer and will not allow the message to be repeated often enough.
