Making your content accessible

Whether you're producing a film or creating content for socials, we support clients - from government to creative agencies - to make content accessible.

Why do you need to make your content accessible?

As much as a fifth of New Zealand’s population has difficulty accessing media content. When you provide captions and audio description, you’re also providing those people with much-needed access to news, entertainment and culture. You’re opening up your content to all, not just some. Ensuring that the entire country, in all its diversity, can enjoy the show.

You can make your content accessible in three simple steps

  • 01

    Audit your content Is there a soundscape that needs captioning? Is there any critical visual information that needs audio description?

  • 02

    Request a quote Once you’ve identified a need for Able’s services, get in touch for a quote for captioning and audio description services.

  • 03

    Submit your content for production Leave your content in our experienced team’s safe hands, and we’ll take care of the rest.

"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 Isla from Mount Maunganui

“Without Able putting the captions on my TV, I wouldn't have known about the sudden Covid lockdowns or tsunami warnings. Captions have helped me through a crazy year by at least helping to make the information on TV available to me and others with access needs."
