British Sign Language
British Sign Language (BSL) is recognised as a full independent language and it is estimated that over 80,000 people use BSL as their first language. We see BSL used increasingly in public spaces, on TV, in theatre and public meetings as a way of making these things more accessible. This is exactly what we want to do for your film.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a film we’ve made for you or a film you bring to us, we can supply a BSL interpreted version. All you need to do is send us the film.
We will interpret and then sign your film, overlay the film with the BSL interpretation and then send that version back to you which will now be accessible to anyone that uses British Sign Language. Its that simple.
Subtitles and closed captions allow your film to reach a substantially wider audience.
Adding subtitles to your film makes it a much more accessible film, accessible for those who are deaf or hard of hearing but also for those who are unable to watch your video with the volume turned up, for instance maybe it’s on a public display screen in a doctors surgery or maybe you are expecting viewers to watch your video on a device in a crowded public space.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a film we’ve made for you or a film you bring to us, we can supply you with a subtitled version. All you need to do is send us the film.
We can also provide you with a transcript in a format used by YouTube to add closed captions to your film. This will allow YouTube viewers to select the Closed Caption option, found on YouTube’s video control bar.
Because we are a charity, when you work with us you will know that you are also supporting us to deliver free support services to our community. These services include our free information and advice service, our virtual Centre for Independent Living, our Citizen Journalism and our Film Making Club.
