Agulló, Belén (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Transmedia Catalonia Research Group)

Data: 2018
Resum: Immersive media such as virtual reality or 360º contents are increasingly present in our society. However, immersive content is not always accessible to all, and research within the field of AudiovisualTranslation and Media Accessibility is needed on how to cater for the needs of diverse users. In this paper, the speaker will briefly present a state-of-the-art on the immersive technologies (virtual reality and 360º videos) to be researched within this PhD study, as well as its current application to media. Then, an overview on subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing in immersive environments will be given, including challenges and possible solutions. Finally, the results from a focus group developed in relation to the European project ImAc(Immersive Accessibility) will be presented. In this focus group, deaf and hard-of-hearing users were asked about their recommendations and expectations on how subtitling in 360º video content could be offered.
