Enrico Pigliacampo talks about Live Text Access (LTA), project co-funded by the ERASMUS+ programme of the EU. LTA is a strategic partnership addressing inclusion and innovation in higher education with a focus on three European priorities: development of curricula to meet labour market and societal needs, open education in the digital era and social inclusion.
Real-time subtitles enable live access to audiovisual content and in situations where support for communication is required. The need for real-time subtitles has risen since the adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) by the European Accessibility Act and the Audiovisual Media Service Directive. They urge service providers to ensure access to people with a visual or hearing disability.
The project has a balanced participation of three universities SDI, UAB and SSML, two accessibility service providers Sub-Ti Access and Velotype, one production company ZDF Digital, one certification association ECQA and one end user associations EFHOH.
