Media Access Australia releases report on Accessible Regions Campaign

no

Media Access Australia today released the findings of its Accessible Regions Campaign. The campaign has found that the quality of captioning on regional news and current affairs programs is severely lacking.

The Accessible Regions Campaign

Between October and December 2010, Media Access Australia conducted an Accessible Regions Campaign, which focused on ensuring that regional news and current affairs programs are broadcast with quality captions.

In the past, regional broadcasters have had a much poorer record on meeting captioning requirements than their metropolitan counterparts. Metropolitan broadcasters are subject to a far higher degree of scrutiny than regional broadcasters, which naturally means that there is less pressure on them to meet their targets.
