We are committed to making the electronic technologies we deploy accessible to individuals with disabilities. In this effort, we work with the Access Board, an independent Federal agency devoted to accessibility for people with disabilities. The Access Board established Federal standards for electronic and information technology under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. The Bureau uses an accessibility analysis software program to evaluate compliance with these standards.
The Bureau's work on accessible design is continuous, and we welcome feedback on improving the accessibility features of our site. Please contact FCC Support with your suggestions or comments.
The majority of the documents posted on our site are presented in multiple formats, including the Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF). To help people with visual disabilities work more effectively with Adobe Acrobat software and Adobe PDF files, Adobe Systems, Inc. offers resources at Adobe Accessibility.
The Universal Licensing System (ULS) and the Antenna Structure Registration (ASR) are Bureau electronic filing applications. We are currently working on these systems to improve compatibility with assistive devices. Disabled individuals experiencing difficulties with ULS or ASR should contact FCC Support.
