How you can help us

View press about us. and check out our old press page here.

There are many digital streaming services out there that are not accessible to people with disabilities. Although VOD, video on demand services are offering captions and some described content there should be more of it. We are a team of disabled media consumers who want to make sure digital media is accessible as well as get companies to instill accessibility practices within. We also aim to advocate ahead of the times. While the government and the law lag behind, we will try to bring about forward thinking solutions that are legal and that benefit everyone.

The mission

  1. To provide accessible software and interfaces to VOD customers by advocating for their needs. We will, first, try networking and connecting the right people to ideas and decision makers.
  2. Implement and ensure future accessibility practices and consideration for multiple disabilities.
  3. Ensure that relatively all types of disability are taken into careful consideration at all times when designing or planning design changes.

These are the targets we want to meet

  1. Provide a screen reader friendly experience to all platform functions on the PC and mobile devices with multiple screen readers
  2. Provide an easily navigable interface for the mobility impaired using adaptive technology.
  3. Provide easy access to audio described content for the blind and the visually impaired on streaming services as well as DVD selection currently and in the future.

  1. then, the captions issues include You-Tube. Then, there’s HULU; plus there is Amazon Plus (and who else)? Thank you for starting this effort.

  2. Hello,
    Im grateful to have found this website, and hope you can help please?
    My son is totally blind, and i have read that netflix offers audio described films and tv series. To date our experiences involve ny son being dependent on a sighted person having to find the audio described film for him.
    Im hoping you will know if there is a way he will be able to access audio described programmes on netflix independently, and how? Would we require a new version of apple tv?
    We live im the UK.
