We are delighted to announce that Able has been selected as a chosen provider for the The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Supplier Panel for translation, transcription, alternative formats and contents production services.
We are honoured to be a member of the DPMC & NEMA supplier panel, continuing our work in supporting the Public Sector to ensure that all New Zealanders, whatever their access need or preference, can access breaking news and critical information via our provision of captions and audio description to enhance audio-visual content. Our role is to ensure that all audiovisual media content is accurately captioned, audio described and made accessible for New Zealanders, providing a vital service for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences, those with diverse access needs, and ESL communities, and enrichment for hearing audiences.
Able’s contribution enables the provision of captioning and audio-description for free-to-air television during emergency broadcasts, ensuring that Aotearoa’s diverse communities are all included in national conversation, and have access to breaking information. Able is the chosen government service provider, and selecting Able to be a member of the DPMC & NEMA supplier panel is an investment into, and endorsement of, public media accessibility in Aotearoa.
Ngā mihi nui, e te whānau.
