At a meeting in Washington, DC today that Adrienne Abbott* and I attended that Suzanne Goucher* and Ann Arnold* with NASBA organized, FEMA announced they have filed a Petition for Partial Reconsideration of the FCC’s Fifth Report and Order. This issue is no surprise: Text-To-Speech.
The FCC announced at the meeting today that they expect the long-awaited formal publication of the Fifth Report and Order will happen in the next week or so, We were told that the delay was caused by a review of the ECIG document that the FCC made a part of the Report and Order.
A PDF copy of what FEMA filed can be found below.
We were told that Monroe Electronics also filed a Petition. More on this as events warrant.
