The ABC has signed a new long-term contract with Captioning and Subtitling International (CSI) to provide captioning services across its channels ABC1, ABC2, ABC3 and ABC News 24.

CSI has been providing captioning services to the ABC since 2005, and this year is expected to produce 3,000 hours of offline (pre-prepared) captioning and 7,500 hours of live captioning. CSI’s live captioning is provided by its partner, Caption It Pty Ltd.

CSI’s Business Director, Malcolm Beech-Allen, said, “With ongoing technical developments and the increase in new media platforms, it’s an exciting time for us and makes for a strong and consolidated footing on which to bring high quality access services to all ABC viewers.”
