Description

 

More and more media content is provided with important accessibility services such as subtitles and audio description. While this is good news it helps little if these services cannot be used because of barriers in the user interface.

The accessibility team at IRT has analyzed these barriers based on interviews with real users. It has not only worked out how the barriers come up but also how they can be avoided.

In the event, the team will explain the research approach, their findings, and the developed concepts for improved access to accessibility. 

Frauke Langguth, head of ARD Text, will introduce in the topic.

Speaker: Melina Möhnle (IRT), Michaela Schmierl (IRT), Laura Ehlis (IRT)

Description

 

In the last years, the Internet Media Subtitle and Caption profile (IMSC) has been established as a renowned technology to produce, contribute, and distribute subtitles and captions in broadcast and streaming scenarios. It is used and referenced amongst others by DVB, MPEG, ATSC, and EBU technologies.

Open Source projects like the IMSC renderer imscJS and the subtitle editor imscEd demonstrate transparently how IMSC can be implemented into operation.

The online event spots light on the strategies of these projects, looks behind the scenes and shows the wide spectrum of IMSC usage. As an introduction, the current specification editor of IMSC, Pierre-Anthony Lemieux, will give an update of the IMSC standard.

Speaker: Pierre-Anthony Lemieux (Sandflow), Michael Seiferle (BaseX), Andreas Tai (IRT)
