FRED is pleased to present a new periodical programme on media accessibility and inclusion, fostered by Sub-ti Access. This programme aims to inform its listeners and keep them updated on the status of media accessibility. We hope to raise awareness on accessibility in media and live entertainment, which is one of the 8 priority areas of the European Disability Strategy 2010 – 2020.
As leader of MAP, Media Accessibility Platform that he founded together with three researchers Gian Maria Greco, Anna Matamala and Pilar Orero, Pablo Romero Fresco talks about the Media Accessibility Platform International Conference that took place in Vigo last October and its action points. He gives his personal definition of media accessibility and tells us about his contribution to the UMAQ project “Understanding Media Accessibility Quality” with the panel Negotiating Quality in Accessibility: The Case of Live Subtitling. Pablo Romero Fresco is also a filmmaker and his first documentary, Joining the Dots (2012), was used by Netflix as well as schools around Europe to raise awareness about audiodescription. Now he’s currently working on new documentary.
