KBS has significantly raised accessibility for the disabled.

KBS announced Monday that it has expanded subtitle services for its 1TV and 2TV channels. The broadcaster also increased its percentage of broadcasts with sign language to eight percent on 1TV and two-point-three percent on 2TV.

KBS added that it will air 60-minute sign language news programs six times over the course of each weekend. Previously, such programs were aired on just three occasions for 30 minutes each time.

KBS said the blind will be provided with audio description services for a wider range of programs, including children's programs and high-quality documentaries. Previously, such commentary services were mostly for TV dramas.
