Abstract
ERGA - European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services
Has published a Special Task Report on the provision of greater accessibility to audiovisual media services for persons with disabilities (published on 7 December 2016).

The European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services (ERGA) brings together heads or high level representatives of national independent regulatory bodies in the field of audiovisual services, to advise the Commission on the implementation of the EU's Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD).
As part of its work programme for 2016, ERGA established 3 sub-groups, one of which is tasked with
“Exploring key themes which are of high relevance and beneficial to future-proof European Audiovisual Regulation” (sub-group 2). The subgroup has the remit to consider issues that are of high relevance and beneficial to future-proof European Audiovisual Regulation, regardless of the way in which the EU framework for Audiovisual Media evolves. Within the sub-group, two task forces were established – one addressing the topic of Protection of Minors and a second which would examine the provision of greater accessibility to audiovisual services for persons who are visually or aurally impaired. This report concerns the work of the Accessibility task force during 2016.
