Subtitles and voice guide provided for barrier free in visual work

June 16, 2016

A non-profit corporation in Sagamihara-shi, Kanagawa near Tokyo has begun to collect volunteers to make subtitles and voice guide of two independent showing works for persons with sight or hearing impairment to enjoy watching movies.

It aims to train the staff in making subtitles and voice guide which currently lack, and technological improvement.
To promote barrier free environment in visual works, the Law on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities was carried out in April this year, but it's negligible that there are subtitles and voice guide to a picture work, and staff education has been a big problem.
