Access Services


In vision signing involves translating a programme's dialogue into British Sign Language (BSL). Sign language is a visual language with a unique syntax having its own independent grammar and vocabulary.

An interpreter, whose image is superimposed on the broadcasted programme, carries out that work.

The service is aimed at deaf people, for an audience mainly based in Wales, or those able to access S4C on the Sky platform outside Wales.

As a viewer you don't have to do anything different, as the signing is available to all viewers.

Signed programmes are normally shown at weekends or at lunchtime during the week or you can watch online on S4C Clic.

For further information, contact the S4C Viewers Hotline on 0370 600 4141, or e-mail us

    Reflecting Wales in all its Diversity: Everyone's S4C

    We are always looking to improve the accessibility of our services. Following feedback from the British Sign Language Community (BSL) we have modified the location of the BSL link on our S4C Click platform to make it more visible. Coinciding with Deafness Awareness Week, we launched our monthly BSL Newsletter, with an option to receive the information via BSL Interpreter video.
