Source: Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

On October 22, 2013, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau announced that the FCC needs more time to review a petition requesting a waiver from the FCC’s advanced communications accessibility requirements for certain e-reader devices. The petition was filed by a Coalition of E-Reader Manufacturers. The Bureau granted the temporary waiver until January 28, 2014. During this temporary waiver period, the FCC will evaluate the merits of the petition and decide whether to grant or deny the waiver request.
