If you or a loved one likes media – newspapers and TV for example – but can’t enjoy them because of a disability, check out Accessible Media Inc. (AMI)’s two sites www.AMI.ca and www.AMItele.ca.The not-for-profit makes it possible for those with hearing and visual challenges to still access an array of media.In described video, for example, professional narrators describe key visual elements of movies, TV shows, and documentaries for those with visual impairments.

Another service has narrators reading feature articles from Canadian and international magazines and excerpts from books. AMI also produces programs on various topics, including technology, current events and entertainment.
