Making cinema accessible for the blind and visually impaired
Walczak, Agnieszka (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Data: 2016
Resum: Audio description (AD) services are no longer present only on television, but also in theatres, operas, museums or during sports events (Holland 2008; Kruger 2010; Matamala and Orero 2007; Michalewicz 2014). Another place that should cater for the needs of the blind and partially sighted users is the cinema. Although not many cinemas offer AD on a regular basis yet, except for the UK with more than 300 facilities screening films with AD, this situation is gradually changing. An ideal scenario would be for the visually impaired people to attend cinemas together with their sighted friends in a fully integrated manner. Thanks to the development of technology this may soon become a reality. As part of the UAB participation in the EU project Hybrid Broadcast Broadband for All (HBB4ALL, www. hbb4all. eu), UAB along with the Catalan Television (TVC) were asked to gather end-user feedback on the application called ArtAccéss. It was developed by the company S•Dos for the Catalan Government with the aim of facilitating access to culture for people with sensory impairments. To this end, a test was created. Its goal was to check the usability, utility and overall quality of the application when providing AD. Blind and partially sighted users were invited to a regular session at a film festival. They were watching a film and simultaneously listening to the AD via the application downloaded beforehand. After the screening the participants were interviewed. The results of the interviews along with the presentation of the application architecture will be the focus of this paper.
