People with a sensory handicap also want to have access to multimedia content on the TV. Without access services such as subtitles, audiodescription and sign language this would not be possible. Using the Swiss Federation for the Deaf as an example, we will show the challenges and needs of the deaf when it comes to accessing TV content and the solutions available.
