Article about the VA access

Carla Beyer-Smolin

Hi VAAVC members,


FYI from Steve Sterry about VA websites not being accessible. It was discussed at the meeting tonight that many of the VA medical meeting platforms also do have have captioning access. It was discussed at the meeting tonight that this may be a great focus for the chapter to jump on to show support for veterans with hearing loss.

Subject: Article about the VA


I thought that you might be interested in reading the article referenced below.  This parallels our complaints about the VA ignoring the hearing disabilities of many of our veterans.  Perhaps we might want to send in an OpEd to the Washington Post that discusses the problems that our hearing disabled have with accessing VA sites.
