How can the United States ensure that people with disabilities share fully in the benefits of broadband technologies and services? This was the focus of a conference in Washington, DC, participated by Google, Microsoft, and others. As in 2010, still millions of Americans don’t have access to the wealth of information made available on the Web, which’s why the Federal Communications Commission will deliver to Congress a National Broadband Plan to extend the benefits of broadband to all Americans. The plan recommends steps to better understand and address the needs of people with disabilities, stimulate innovation in accessibility solutions, and ensure access to the government’s electronic and information technology. After this plan is announced, “you’ve the opportunity to interview FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, go to CitizenTube to submit your video or text question via Google Moderator, and vote on your favorites; we'll bring a selection of the top-voted questions to Genachowski in our interview on March 16.
