The Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) has added hundreds of episodes of on-demand accessible television programs with audio description and captions. School personnel and parents with children who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind qualify for access. DCMP is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, and there are no costs associated with our program.
DCMP’s Accessible Television Portal includes content provided by major TV networks, as well as producers and distributors like PBS KIDS, the Fred Rogers Company, Scholastic Media, and Litton Entertainment.
All of the programs below were made accessible through grants by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services/Office of Special Education Services. Some were part of the DCMP grant, while others were a part of five Television Access grants, awarded to Bridge Multimedia, CaptionMax, Dicapta, Narrative Television Network, and National Captioning Institute.
The service is currently available via the web, mobile apps and set-top boxes.
