On October 8, 2020, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai recognized the contributions of three remarkable individuals who have helped make the world more accessible. The ESA applauds all three recipients of the 2020 Chairman’s Awards for Advancements in Accessibility. We have been privileged to have worked with two of them. Claude Stout has led TDI for over 20 years, and we are proud of our partnership with Claude and his capable team, from whom we have learned much on how to make games more accessible. We also applaud the work of Karen Peltz Strauss, whose pioneering efforts on advocating for accessible technology for consumers has benefited millions of Americans.
