What we do

For more than 40 years, the Media Access Group at WGBH has led the way with innovations and expertise for captioning and describing television shows, films, and videos. MAG's initiatives have received enthusiastic support from people who have hearing or vision loss and those with cognitive disabilities, along with their families, teachers, and friends. MAG is grateful to the many clients and partners who have made all of the accomplishments possible.


Through research and technology developed by our own Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media, the Media Access Group has expanded into new markets. We now procide comprehensive captioning and description services for the web, theme parks, museums, self-guided tours, and many other attractions. Please click on the PDFs on the left for more information about some of these services.
