Sorenson Communications and CaptionCall Congratulate Rosenworcel, Sohn on Nominations

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Sorenson Communications and CaptionCall congratulate Jessica Rosenworcel on her designation to chair the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Gigi Sohn on her nomination as commissioner. Sorenson and CaptionCall, Indeo brand companies, are the leading providers of American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services, Video Relay Service (VRS), and telephone captioning service. Sorenson and CaptionCall honor them for the firsts they each represent – namely Rosenworcel as the first woman to chair the FCC and Sohn as the first openly LGBTIQ+ FCC commissioner.

“We are excited to continue working with Chairwoman Rosenworcel and we look forward to working with Gigi Sohn on advancing the promise of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) to support millions of Americans who are Deaf or who are experiencing hearing loss,” said Scott Wood, CEO of Sorenson Communications and CaptionCall. “Recent years have seen significant advances in communication services, but there are improvements to be made in advancing accessibility to these services. FCC leadership will continue to play a critical role ensuring that the relay industry is able to innovate to provide functional equivalency in communication and making these services available to all Americans who need them.”

The FCC regulates relay services which make it possible for millions of people with hearing loss or who are Deaf to connect with anyone on a phone. These vital communication resources include Sorenson’s Video Relay Service (VRS) and CaptionCall’s Internet Protocol Captioned Telephone Service (IP CTS).

“We’re thrilled to be part of a new era of accessibility for all people and are excited to continue to work with the FCC to deliver on our mission of connecting people through critical communication services – regardless of ability, language, or culture,” noted Wood.
