Most studies show that blind and visually impaired persons watch TV as much as sighted persons. This G3ict White Paper Business Case Series, published by G3ict in June 2013, is researched in cooperation with Accessible Media Inc. (AMI)

Data shows that visually impaired people have an interest in gaining access to television and video through the technique of video description, and that individuals who are familiar with video description obtain numerous benefits from it. This report will describe how the creation and growth of AMI was made possible and what is available to Canadian viewers. In addition, this case study examines international guidelines regarding media accessibility, the regulatory background specific to Canada as well as the needs of the visually impaired community.
