These include closed captioning and signing for the deaf, audio description and audio captions for the blind or those with visual impairments, and accessible remote control devices for the elderly and those with reduced dexterity.

It also identifies the need to make the target users aware of access services and provides a checklist for those implementing accessible TV."
