There are many regulations that mandate video description as a "reasonable accommodation" in education, government services, broadcast television, and other fields. Some of these regulations originate in legislation that includes the Americans with Disabilities Act, 1990 (ADA), section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act 1975, and various Department of Justice (DOJ) Rules. Video Programming is specifically addressed in the 21st Century Communication and Video Accessibility Act (2008). Section 713 of the act addresses requirements of video programming that is distributed or re-distributed over the Internet. Additional proposed rules are being considered by the DOJ for movie cinemas and media distributed via mobile devices. In virtually all cases, it seems regulatory measures would have been unnecessary had media producers and distributors voluntarily provided equal access.
