The Accessibility Plus Program is a new initiative aimed at making a breakthrough in the development of civilization and the quality of life of all residents of Poland. This will be achieved by better architectural, transport and communication accessibility of public space as well as products and services.
The Institute of Innovative Technologies EMAG was one of many participants of the conference The event was accompanied by an exhibition presenting solutions, products and services aimed at increasing broadly understood accessibility. During the exhibition, the EMAG Institute presented its AudioMovie application – in the form of the smallest cinema in the World. AudioMovie is an innovative solution on a global scale working as an application for portable devices. It provides, in cinemas and during film festivals, audio-description (AD) and audio-subtitles (AS) to people with visual and hearing impairment, people with hearing or vision loss or people suffering from dyslexia. All of these people have limited access to culture due to their inborn or acquired disability, which is why they are excluded from social life. The application can also be used by non-disabled consumers. The smallest cinema in the world enjoyed a great popularity among the conference participants. Even the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki dropped in for a short movie and to see the AudioMovie application in action.
