ITU Workshop on Making Media Accessible to All: The Options and the Economics

  • Geneva, Switzerland
  • October 24-25, 2013
  • Venue: ITU Headquarters, Rue de Varembé, 2, Geneva
  • Can be attended remotely

The ITU-T Study Group 16 Focus Group on Audio Visual Accessibility (FG-AVA), is organizing a two-day workshop on 'Making Media Accessible to all: the options and the economics'. The interdisciplinary group was established in 2011 to encourage the use of common accessibility tools across all delivery media including broadcasting, IPTV and Internet. 

The main objective of the workshop will be to explain the options available for access services, the economics of providing them and to offer successful financial case studies of their use.

Targeted Audience
The workshop will be of value to all those making content for, manufacturing equipment for, regulating, using, or contemplating using, access tools with media. With the growing application of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, such services will be made an obligatory requirement in the near future.
