Lithuanian TV To Help People with Hearing and Visual Impairments
Lithuanian National Radio and Television (LRT) has announced
the launch of a series that is specially adapted for the visually impaired. This is the first
project in Lithuania with a special soundtrack for the blind and partially
sighted. For example, quiet parts of the programme will be accompanied by audio commentary
to help viewers follow the plot. LRT will also be increasing the number of subtitled
shows to widen accessibility for people with hearing impairments.
