WGBH receives access funding

WGBH, the major American public broadcasting producer based in Boston, has received US$1 million from the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation to support its work in making media accessible for the disabled.

WGBH’s National Center for Accessible Media will use the funding over the next six years to research and develop new media access technologies, as well as to support its ongoing efforts to advance public policy debate on access issues.

Larry Goldberg, WGBH’s Director of Media Access, has said that the money will aid research into access for new media platforms. “We now see so much content migrating to the Internet, iPods and other platforms,” said Goldberg. “The Shapiro gift will enable NCAM to anticipate barriers and opportunities on emerging media platforms, and to start early in making ‘the next big thing’ accessible for people with sensory disabilities.”
