Described and Captioned Media Program
The Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) provides services designed to support and improve the academic achievement of students who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind. These services include (1) a library of free-loan described and captioned educational media (available to teachers, family members, and others involved with educating qualifying K–12 students), (2) a clearinghouse of information related to educational media access, (3) a gateway to internet resources related to accessibility, and (4) training and evaluation of any service provider desiring to appear on the DCMP’s approved lists of description and captioning service providers. There are no user registration or service fees. The DCMP is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the National Association of the Deaf.
