Title: Media Access Group
Url: http://main.wgbh.org/wgbh/pages/mag/
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: The Media Access Group (MAG), part of the prestigious WGBH Broadcasting, focuses on making a variety of media accessible to people with disabilities and providing information about that process. Users will find information about the services and products offered - which include captioning services (both real-time and offline), descriptive video service (descriptions of visual portions of film and media for those who are blind or have vision impairments) and MoPix (a project which is working to bring both captioning and descriptive video to the big screen). In addition to explanations of their services the MAG site also offers a section on research and development which links users to NCAM (the National Center for Accessible Media) which is the research and development component of MAG. The resources section includes the MAG Guides which highlight various issues related to captioning and descriptive video, including the FCC's rules related to both topics. Also available under the resources tab are descriptive video guides, information on accessible DVDs and links to other related resources.
