English term or phrase: public access
Hi,
I'm translating the subtitles of an episode of E! Hollywood True Story. This episode is about an E! program hostess. So, an executive of E! is talking about her demo tape. She said, "The tape was sort of public access. It was kind of simple and basic." What does "public access" mean here? In the tape, she shows her skills of news reporting.

公眾(眾人)可得(可看)


Explanation:
我不認為它是一部電影的名字。如果是的話,我觉得會有括號。我認為public access 这里是眾人可得,可看的意思,也就是說公眾能查閱的。

在美國的海灘,有牌子上寫著public access 即公眾可用,這意味著任何人都可以從小路步行到海灘。然後你會看到一些牌子, private access,私用, 這意味著只有某些人(如旅館客人,公寓住戶等)可從小路步行到海灘。盡管同一個海灘, 有范圍是公用,有些是私用的。

Explanation:
"The tape was sort of public access. It was kind of simple and basic."
这句里面使用了be of结构,通常会在后面加名词,但如果改换可以将其改换为形容词。比如it is of importance可以变为it is important.
所以整句的意思可以理解为,宣传片里面的内容简单且很基础,[普通人]/[不需要专业知识]也可以看懂。

for your reference.:-)希望可以帮到您。
