Tell us what you think about British Sign Language on TV channels and on-demand services

06 May 2021

Ofcom is inviting people who use British Sign language (BSL) to tell us what they think about signing on TV and video-on-demand services.

Our survey aims to find out how often BSL users watch signed programmes, the types of programmes they watch, and what they think of the quality and availability of signed programmes.

The feedback we receive will be crucial in helping to inform our guidelines on signing for TV channels and on-demand services - including what types of programmes should be prioritised.

We’d like to hear from people who:

  • Are over 16 and use BSL to communicate;
  • live with someone over 16 who uses BSL to communicate; or
  • have a child under 16 who uses BSL to communicate.

People with more than one BSL user in their household can complete one survey for each BSL user.

Participants can respond through an online BSL-interpreted survey, or by sending us a video of them signing their response.  You can find out more in the survey.

The survey is open until Thursday 1 July.
