What we do
Media Access Group at WGBH has been pioneering and delivering accessible media to people with disabilities as well as their families, teachers, and friends for over 30 years. The Media Access Group continues to develop new means of access each year. Members of the group's collective staff represent the leading experts in their fields. The success of their various initiatives is exemplified by a history of accomplishments and continuous growth, the integration of their innovative products and services into society at large, and the enthusiastic support they receive from organizations serving people with sensory disabilities or who have hearing or vision loss.
We are grateful to our many clients and partners who help us make media accessible to the nation's 35 million people who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind and visually impaired.
Through research and technology development from our own National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM), The Media Access Group is actively entering new markets. We are now able to provide comprehensive captioning and description services for the web, theme parks, museums and many other attractions.
