#ATIA19 Audio: There Is More Described And Captioned Media Out There Thanks To The DCMP

Many of us consider the rise of Audio Description and Caption services as something that came about recently. However, what if we told you that early forms of these services date back to 1958? In this interview Kyle Sisk, Information Systems Manager for the Described and Captioned Media program, provides J.J. a look at how accessible content goes all the way back to the 16 millimeter film strip. Kyle then talks about how the DCMP is one of the largest creators of educational based described and captioned content currently through more modern delivery services like the web, iOS app and even a Roku Channel. Tune in to hear how the DCMP has worked with Netflix and how you can become a member of their free services. If you would like to know more, visit the DCMP website
