About the Clear2Connect Coalition

Our mission is to educate about the critical importance of quality, accurate communication technology for Deaf and hard of hearing Americans, especially those in underserved communities. This includes Internet Protocol Captioned Telephone Service (IP CTS), also known as captioned telephone service, and Video Relay Service (VRS). To achieve this mission, we advocate for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to put quality standards and metrics in place for these essential services.
