In a world full of media, don't you think everyone should be able to connect?

That's where we come in.

Able creates accessible media for Aotearoa. Let us show you how.

Captions

Captions help make the magic of television and film accessible to Aotearoa's communities. That includes the 880,000+ people who are Deaf and hard-of-hearing, the 500,000+ who speak English as a second language and anyone who enjoys the clarity and understanding they bring.

Audio Description

Audio description makes the visual verbal. It’s an alternative audio track that describes the important action taking place on screen. And for the 180,000+ New Zealanders who are blind or who have low vision, it provides invaluable access to their favourite television shows.

"I remember, when I was a child I saved up money for weeks (I still can’t believe my parents let me do this!) and bought a TV. It’s such a wonderful portal to the rest of the world. And that's where media accessibility comes in..."

Meet Martine from Auckland

“We can’t do without audio description. I think it’s just amazing - we really enjoy New Zealand content, especially documentaries, as well as Country Calendar - and New Zealand series, like The Luminaries.”
