NPO Media Access Support Center Organization Overview
The beginning of MASC was a word from a deaf person.
"If I don't have subtitles, I can't watch this movie until I die"
“I am a mother of hearing, and I am always sad because I cannot enjoy movies with a deaf child.”
`` Japanese movies are sad because they have no subtitles, so I can only watch Western movies '' etc.
“Everything about the movie ’s excitement”
The activities started with many people involved.
The purpose of the Media Access Support Center is to create a society where all people can access movies and video works without any inconvenience.

Video content, such as movies and animations, will enrich people's daily lives, but those who have a handicap of "I can't hear" or "I can't see" cannot enjoy such services. MASC is an organization that creates barrier-free subtitles and audio guides for those people, stocks them publicly, and works to create a system and environment where anyone can watch video content anytime.
