The CSA was seized by complaints relating to the press conference of the President of the Republic, diffused on September 7th, 2015 on France 2, BFM TV and I-TV without translation in language of the signs.

These editors, by not translating this program into language of the signs, however did not fail to fulfil their obligations as regards access to the programs for the deaf or deaf people. Indeed, as regards public service, there does not exist any obligation legislative or lawful to translate emissions into language of the signs. With regard to the chains BFM TV and I-TV, conventions envisage only one obligation of translation in language of the signs of the 13 hour old newspaper of BFM TV and of the newspaper of 16:30 of I-TV.

The CSA answered in this direction the plaintiffs.
