Improve your Digital Accessibility

As an organisation founded by deaf people, we understand the need for Sign Language content better than most. That’s why Direct Access provides a bespoke Sign Language service so that you can communicate crucial information to deaf people, while also providing non-disabled people with the tools they need to learn the fundamentals of your regional variation.

We tailor each of our custom-made training videos to suit your individual needs, researching key terms related to your organisation, while also including words and phrases that are necessary in day to day life.

Check out this segment of a longer video we produced for Oxford Advanced Skills and the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

Tailored to Suit You

Whether you require a translation of an instruction manual for deaf staff members, or a landing page on a website, Direct Access Sign Language training videos will invigorate your digital accessibility standards.

As sign languages are different around the world and there are even different regional variations within a country, we always select the most appropriate trained signer for your needs.

Audio Described / Subtitled Videos

We specialise in developing content that is accessible for Deaf, hard of hearing and visually impaired people. Our clients range from local authorities to museums and art galleries.

Our Accessible Media team offers:

  • Deaf people fluent in sign language delivering translations.
  • A fast turnaround.
  • Ability to save into different formats to add to your platforms as required.
  • Accurate subtitling composed 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.

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.
