Our Story

Founded in 2003, AI-Media has grown from humble beginnings to become the world’s leading captioning technology provider.

Making the world’s content accessible for everyone

AI-Media was founded with the belief that everyone deserves access to information. And this vision remains today as we continue our journey as the world’s leading captioning provider, pioneering technology that’s revolutionizing the way millions across the globe consume content.

Tony Abrahams and Alex Jones

How it all started

AI-Media was founded by Alex Jones and Tony Abrahams, who are both keen advocates for people with disability. Born deaf, Alex grew without the chance to enjoy the same access as his hearing friends. Later in life, Alex met Tony, and the duo quickly bonded over their common goal of ending the exclusion faced by people with disability. This materialized in the creation of AI-Media. 

A captioning technology pioneer  

Today, AI-Media is a global organization that helps many of the world’s leading brands caption their TV broadcasts, live streams, events, virtual meetings and more. Our team is spread across the globe, with more than 500 employees situated across six office locations in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Our technology delivers over 7 million minutes of captioning, transcription and translation for live and recorded media content, online events and web streams every month.
