Action on Hearing Loss are working with ATVOD to increase the amount of subtitles available on catch up TV and video on demand (ATVOD is the regulator for catch up TV and Video on Demand). This is an area I know most of you are passioante about and want to see resolutions as soon as possible. Can I please ask you to help by completing a survey to help identify the services that should be prioritised. Please take part and share this with deaf and hard of hearing friends in the UK (survey should be completed by people in the UK only). The regulator ATVOD covers Catch Up TV and Video on Demand – this is about working with ATVOD on that area of entertainment. ATVOD doesn’t cover that area of concern to us i.e. videos in the news pages and wider internet. This is why the list includes catch up and VOD services only.
