NCAM Announces “Media Access Mobile”

The WGBH National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) has developed an impressive mobile system to enhance the experience for visitors to cultural institutions who are blind, deaf, hard-of-hearing or who speak languages other than English. The innovative technology from NCAM, dubbed “Media Access Mobile,” provides synchronized text and/or audio description in any combination of languages, all provided simultaneously, over a WiFi network and displayed on commercially available handheld devices (which can be provided to visitors on-site). Watch Media Access Mobile (MAM) in action in a new brief video. Contact ncam@wgbh.org to learn more.
