The Module Development Project for Persons with Disabilities to Promote Their Rights of Accessibility and Utilization of Information on Broadcasting Services and Telecommunications
The accessibility of broadcasting services for persons with disabilities is a neglected issue. To date, broadcasting operators and TV program producers have not adequately considered the needs of persons with disabilities, or have placed them low on their priority list. This is likely due to the fact that Thailand’’s broadcasting services primarily focus on generating revenue through commercials. Operators tend to target the general audience and produce programs that appeal to them. As the commercial success is determined by the size of the audience, persons with disabilities, who constitute a small percentage, are often overlooked or their rights are violated.
