Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based

Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

Description:

In honor of Older Americans Month, the FCCs Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau will host a webinar focused on a range of telecommunications and video programming issues related to older Americans. The free webinar will take place at FCC headquarters in Washington, D.C., on May 22 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EDT.

The webinar will provide older Americans and their family and friends with information and tips about the value of broadband connectivity (i.e., staying engaged, telehealth) dealing with robocalls, reporting suspicious calls to the FCCs Consumer Complaint Center, and benefitting from our rules requiring disability access to communications, including rules that require hearing aid compatibility, telecommunications relay services, emergency access, and closed captioning.
