Make your information accessible with our BSL Video Production Service!

Our British Sign Language (BSL) Video Production Service is all about making your information in English accessible to *deaf people.

We employ deaf* presenters to translate your information from English into BSL video clips. We can then provide you with a DVD or a link to the video clips that can be shared online or embedded onto your website etc. All of our BSL Video Production Service is of broadcast quality and we work to industry standards.

Examples of our work:

Leaflets into BSL DVDs
Lots of companies and organisation produce leaflets to promote their services but written leaflets are not always accessible to members of the deaf* community.

Deaf Action can work with you to produce your information in a Video in British Sign Language (BSL), with subtitles and a voice-over spoken English translation. All you need to do is provide the information and we will do the rest!

We can make your website more accessible with information also available British Sign Language.

We are also happy to help you target parts of your website that would benefit from BSL translations and ensure your message reaches all of your clients and members.

If you already have a media team in your organisation and want to produce your own clips we can provide experienced and professional deaf presenters and translators to work with your team in delivering your accessible information.

Added Extras
If you have already produced a brilliant video that you want to share with a wider audience we can add subtitles, spoken English translation, (voiceover), or a BSL interpreted version to your clip. This option proves very useful for organisations that receive requests from their clients to provide accessible formats on clips that are publicly available.

Get in touch with us at and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
