Sign Language and Captioned Videos

We specialise in developing content that is accessible for Deaf, hard of hearing and visually impaired people. Our clients range from local municipalities to museums and art galleries. They rely on our videos to provide vital information and guides ensuring access for all.

We have:

  • A fully established filming studio with video capture and captioning facilities.
  • Deaf people fluent in sign language delivering translations.
  • A fast turnaround.
  • Accurate subtitling delivered by experienced editors.

Producing captions is not just a matter of mirroring spoken words, relevant sounds that may not be obvious such as a car horn or a bird need to be included so the viewer is aware of these sounds.  Sign languages are different around the world and there are even regional variations within a country. We select the most appropriate trained signer for your needs.

Accessible and Inclusive Content

A photograph of the front cover of the Access Guide which Direct Access produced for Cannock Chase. The cover has a dark green colour scheme with a mixture of yellow and white text. It reads "Cannock Chase access guide. Welcome to the Access Guide for Cannock Chase". Underneath this text is the Cannock Chase logo. A photograph on the cover shows a young white woman with downs syndrome riding a bike with stabilisers joyfully. Next to her getting in close for a photo is a white male companion who is off his bike and holding it with one hand. He is also smiling happily. Behind them is a bike trail through some woods.
