19 DecVRS – Ofcom Report

Ofcom have published their research into how video relay services are provided internationally.  As UKCoD’s Deaf Access to Communication group is working to identify a model that will see greater provision in the UK, the research will be valuable in pointing the way for some of the policy and infrastructure challenges we face.  Lessons from other countries about how many people use VRS, how it is funded and how technology is used can help shape our own thinking and developments.

The report can be found on Ofcom’s website.
