NAD Sends Letter to White House and National Association of Broadcasters

The NAD sent a letter to the The White House and National Association of Broadcasters. The NAD asked the White House to ensure a qualified American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is present and visible on the screen on all their emergency press briefings. In a separate letter, the NAD asked NAB to ask their broadcasting members to include the ASL interpreter in the camera shot and to ensure that their content is appropriately captioned on both the television and the Internet. We are working on a video to be released soon about this new update.
