  • Congrats to Barrier Break. You have done it again. Being the First Company in India to make Media Accessible. Accessible Media is significant for all of us, as it provides us the choice of language (closed captions, audio description & Indian sign language) with a wider reach, irrespective of our abilities. Breaking the barriers of communication, it truly empowers us through its accessible auditory and visual space, for comprehension of its content in the field of education, information and entertainment. It provides us the universal user experience and digital media houses the widest possible audience.
