Two accessible movies for the blind and deaf at IFFI
Two Hindi movies ‘Secret Superstar’ and ‘Hindi Medium’ will be made accessible for the deaf and blind viewers at the 48th year of IFFI – International Film Festival of India held in Goa.
This is a part of Accessible India campaign.
Delhi-based organisation Saksham has added audio description to both the films for the blind viewers and subtitles for the deaf viewers.
The initiative to make movies accessible is a step towards inclusion.
It will make the visually impaired and hearing impaired people to participate in watching movies and make them a part of the active society.
Audio description will help the visually impaired understand the silent moments of the film which has no dialogues while subtitles will help the hearing impaired to know the dialogues and music parts of the film.
