We're determined to improve access to TV for people with hearing loss
Access to the television for people with hearing loss has vastly improved in the last few decades. However, there are still many programmes that remain inaccessible due to a lack of subtitles or signed interpretation, or poor quality subtitles.
Many programmes available through catch up or video on demand services do not have subtitles, even if the programmes were subtitled when they were originally broadcast. Subtitles for live programmes are often of poor quality. We have a long way to go but we are determined to improve access for people who are deaf or have a hearing loss.
