This book, a first in its kind, offers a survey of the present state of
affairs in media accessibility research and practice. It focuses on
professional practices which are relative newcomers within the field of
audiovisual translation and media studies, namely, audio description for
the blind and visually impaired, sign language, and subtitling for the deaf
and the hard-of-hearing for television, DVD, cinema, internet and live

Thanks to the work of lobbying groups and the introduction of legislation
in some countries, media accessibility is an area that has recently gained
marked visibility in our society. It has begun to appear in university
curricula across Europe, and is the topic of numerous specialised conferences.

The target readership of this book is first and foremost the growing number
of academics involved in audiovisual translation at universities -
researchers, teachers and students - but it is also of interest to the
ever-expanding pool of practitioners and translators, who may wish to
improve their crafts. The collection also addresses media scholars, members
of deaf and blind associations, TV channels, and cinema or theatre
managements who have embarked on the task of making their programmes and
venues accessible to the visually and hearing impaired.
