Enjoying a good movie is an experience that many of us take for granted. We go to the cinema, put on headphones or curl up on the sofa in front of the TV, and let ourselves be seduced by the stories that roll across the screen. Corporate film may not have as high a cozy factor as it is often about informing and marketing. But it is at least as important that the message really gets across for a successful corporate film.

But for people with various disabilities, access to movies can be a challenge. It is therefore important that we as filmmakers and audience strive to make film accessible to everyone. In this blog post, we'll discuss the importance of film accessibility and the different ways we can improve access for all.


One of the fundamental aspects of accessibility is subtitling. Having subtitles available for people with hearing loss enables them to follow the dialogue and experience the film in a similar way to people without hearing loss. In addition, subtitles are a flexible and cost-effective way to adapt the language of films to other markets. By keeping sound and voice as original but making subtitles in several languages. On many online movie players such as YouTube, you can also let the viewer choose whether they want the subtitles off or on and in which language based on available subtitles.

Visual interpretation

Visual interpretation, on the other hand, provides a detailed description of what is happening on the screen for people with visual impairments. By combining subtitling and visual interpretation, we can make the film accessible to people with both hearing and visual impairments.

Custom Audio Mix:

For people with hearing loss, a movie experience can be difficult without an adapted sound mix. By adjusting the sound balance and amplifying the dialogue, we can help make the dialogue clearer and thereby improve the experience for people with hearing loss. This can include reducing background noise and music, which can sometimes drown out dialogue and make it hard to hear.

The accessibility work is not something that is done as a last step in the process after the film is finished. In order to create a successful film that is truly accessible to everyone, it is important that this work is done throughout the entire production - from idea to finished delivery.

Here, WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) is a very clear and good framework that we adhere to in all productions.
