The purpose of the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) library is to provide free-loan captioned and described educational media to benefit K–12 students who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind. Teachers/interpreters (including those still in training), other professionals, and family members whose use benefits these students qualify to borrow DCMP media through the mail or online. Classroom use of DCMP curricular media must include at least one student who is deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind in the audience.
By federal law, the DCMP may only legally serve individuals, educational programs, and organizations in the U.S. and its territories. Services can be provided to those located at U.S. military bases in other countries if the qualifying students are American citizens.I certify that I qualify as a legitimate user of the Described and Captioned Media Program.
