5-3 Telecommunications Products Accessibility

Telecommunication products are any products whose primary function is to provide telephone functions (i.e., two–way voice communications), regardless of type.

The convergence of telephony and information technology is blurring the line between different product types as a variety of new and innovative products are created (e.g., softphones, voice over IP, etc.). For products with multiple functions, these requirements apply only to the telephone functions of those products.
