Cinema without Barriers®: Cinema for everybody!

A film system featuring audio commentaries for blind people and subtitles for people with hearing impairments.

A.I.A.C.E. aims at promoting entertainment programmes for people suffering from a physical or sensorial disability, who can finally share the fun of going to the cinema with friends, relatives and normal users.

How does it work?

Thanks to a synchronized system, the normal projection is enriched with additional data, therefore it can be enjoyed by the whole audience.

  • Blind people receive an infrared headphone through which they can listen to the audio commentary; actions, moods, situations, colours and landscapes are described by a voice over. Who listens through the headphones can benefit from soundtrack descriptions necessary to better understand the film, without covering dialogues and important background noises.
  • For deaf people there are subtitles on the screen containing, besides the text of the dialogue, even captions with indications about noises, music and tone of the dialogues.
