People with Disabilities and Their Use of Media. TV Is Extremely Important!

People with Disabilities and Their Use of Media. TV Is Extremely Important!

Accessibility plays a key role in the debate on inclusion. A significant aspect is the unimpeded access to media services for all people. Up until now, there has been no reliable data collection on how people with disabilities use media. A study conducted by the Hans-Bredow-Institut (Prof. Dr. Uwe Hasebrink and Dr. Sascha Hölig) together with the Faculty of Rehabilitation Science at the TU Dortmund University (Jun.-Prof. Ingo Bosse) is changing this.  For the first time ever, this study will analyse significant data of people with all kinds of disabilities, as commissioned by the Medienanstalten (DLM) [Media Authorities] and Aktion Mensch [a privately funded organisation that supports people with disabilities, along with disadvantaged adults, teenagers, and children]: what media is used by people with disabilities and which are particularly attractive? Where are the highest barriers for accessing media? The findings of this large standardised survey were discussed at a panel at the Münchener Medientage [Munich Media Days] on October 26, 2016.
