In a bid to gain feedback from movie goers, Media Access Australia has today launched an online questionnaire which will provide industry with information on technical issues that everyday cinema patrons encounter with closed captioning and audio description devices used in accessible cinemas in Australia. 

The questionnaire can be filled out multiple times by people who attend these cinemas and experience technical problems with the equipment, which provides access to movies for Deaf, hearing impaired, blind and vision impaired patrons.
