Captions for broadcast media are essential for the hard of hearing. The Captioning Working Group, with membership from The National Foundation for the Deaf, Deaf Aotearoa and Hearing Association New Zealand, advocates for better access to information through captioning for New Zealanders who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
The New Zealand Captioning Awards have been established to celebrate and recognise the work that individuals and organisations in New Zealand have done to increase accessibility to captioning across multiple environments.
