Ai-Media is founded on the belief that every single person deserves equal access. From Facebook and Amazon to global events and local classes, our solutions address three key needs – accessibility, engagement and analytics. With a product portfolio spanning captioning, transcription, translation, audio description and speech analytics, we help you reach your whole audience.
Since being established in 2003, Ai-Media has continued to broaden our initial mission of creating captions for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community. We now offer products for broadcast, education, events and workplaces to support our mission of inclusion for all. We have become a world leader in delivering the highest quality at the most competitive prices, leveraging our expertise and advanced technologies.
Since September 2020, Ai-Media is a publicly-listed company on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) with the code AIM (ASX:AIM).
How it all started
Alex Jones, the co-founder of Ai-Media, had a keener interest than most in creating access for people with disability. Alex was born deaf and grew up not having the same level of access to daily tasks as his hearing friends.
Then Alex met Tony, another keen advocate for people with disability. Tony, having returned from a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford, was looking to make a meaningful impact on the world. Both sought to end the experience of social, educational and vocational exclusion faced by people with a disability or disadvantage. This impact materialised through the creation of Ai-Media – an advocate for the inclusion of all, through technology and social innovation.
