SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 7, 2010, in document DA 10-2318, 
Chairman Julius Genachowski announced the establishment and appointment 
of members and Co-Chairpersons of the EAAC, an advisory committee 
required by the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video 
Accessibility Act (CVAA), Public Law 11-260, for the purpose of 
achieving equal access to emergency services by individuals with 
disabilities as part of our nation's migration to a national Internet 
protocol-enabled emergency network, also known as the next generation 
9-1-1 system (NG9-1-1). The purpose of the EAAC is to determine the 
most effective and efficient technologies and methods by which to 
enable access to Next Generation 911 (NG 9-1-1) emergency services by 
individuals with disabilities, and to make recommendations to the 
Commission on how to achieve those effective and efficient technologies 
and methods. During the spring of 2011, the EAAC conducted a nationwide 
survey of individuals with disabilities and released a report on that 
survey on June 21, 2011. Following release of the survey report, the 
EAAC developed recommendations, which it submitted to the Commission on 
December 7, 2011, as required by the CVAA. At the November 2012 EAAC 
meeting, the agenda will include discussion of draft reports from the 
EAAC subcommittees and other activities needed to ensure access to 911 
by individuals with disabilities.
    The meeting site is fully accessible to people using wheelchairs or 
other mobility aids. Sign language interpreters, open captioning, and 
assistive listening devices will be provided on site. Other reasonable
