Guaranteeing accessibility of audiovisual content is a key requirement in the context of the obligations entered into by parties to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Accordingly, media service providers should “actively seek to make content accessible to persons with disabilities, in particular with a visual or hearing impairment.” Furthermore, media service providers should not
neglect the needs of individuals with learning difficulties. Accessibility requirements should be met through a progressive and continuous process, while taking into account the practical and unavoidable constraints that could prevent full accessibility, such as programs or events broadcast in real time.

The accessibility report 2021 is stating the current status quo  of the media service providers and their developments in relation to the duties for accessible design. Additionally a comparative presentation of intended target values and the actual achieved values is given.
