|Mission||Making accessible media for all Canadians.|
Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) is a not-for-profit multimedia organization serving more than five million Canadians who are blind, partially sighted, deaf, hard of hearing, mobility or print restricted. Operating two broadcast services: AMI-audio and AMI-tv, and a website (AMI.ca), AMI’s mission is to make accessible media for all Canadians.
Our mission is simple: to make accessible media for all Canadians. In pursuit of that mission, we believe that for all impacted and concerned Canadians, AMI can be a new model media organization that creates, advocates, collaborates and enables accessibility to all media.
AMI-audio is the world’s largest broadcast reading service making local, national and international news and information accessible. Our team of volunteers read and record current articles from leading newspapers and magazines, which are then broadcast on our TV channel and online into more than 10 million Canadian homes. Most of AMI-audio's national service consists of verbatim readings of current articles and stories from newspapers and magazines packaged into topical segments. Our audio line-up provides local and national news, sports, weather and entertainment along with short and long-form lifestyle, leisure and business reports and stories.
AMI-tv is a national English language, open descriptive-video, closed-captioned, basic digital TV specialty service. Licensed by the CRTC, AMI-tv is part of the basic digital package of TV programming offered by all cable systems and satellite direct-to-home services. AMI-tv broadcasts programs from conventional and specialty TV services and foreign-rights holders in an open described, closed-captioned format for people who are blind, low vision, deaf or hard of hearing - a world first!
