Media accessibility solutions that accurately convey your news content

With the dominance of unscripted and reality TV, closed caption usage continues to increase beyond traditional d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences. According to an Ofcom study, up to 80% of television viewers use closed captions for reasons other than hearing loss.

Viewers’ focus on clarification and comprehension of dialogue means greater scrutiny of video accessibility features. Keep your viewers informed and engaged with accurate captions, audio description, and translations. By leveraging a combination of in-house experts, professional contractors, and technology, we help producers achieve the quality and accuracy that network and streaming news demands.
