Audio Description

Designed for people with visual impairment, Audio Description ‘speaks’ what we ‘see’ by describing to them the important visual elements of a programme such as image and shape of an object, filming angles, theatre settings, costumes, movements, etc. This allows people with visual impairment to understand the programme context more thoroughly and enrich their theatre experience.

 

Accessible Captions

Designed for people with hearing impairment, Accessible Captions ‘display’ what we ‘hear’ by transcribing dialogues and lyrics, music and sound effects, names and tones of speakers, speeds and languages of dialogues, etc. into texts. When sounds become observable, people with hearing impairment can understand the programme more thoroughly and get more involved.

 

Sign Language Interpretation

In order to enhance the communication between person with hearing impairment and other audience, simultaneous sign language interpretation is provided in post-screening sharing.

Let us watch human rights documentaries together!

With the support of the Human Commons, an organization that endeavours to assist information accessibility, we offer audio description, sign language interpretation and accessible captions in Chinese during our Human Rights Documentary Film Festival. This allows our friends with disabilities to enjoy the documentaries.

Suzanne, person with visual disability

I was amazed after watching “Frame by frame” (The 6th Amnesty International Hong Kong Human Rights Documentary Film Festival) with the assistance of the Human Commons. In the past, I felt like I had missed lots of things. I either watch films at a cinema screening entirely reserved by the non-governmental organization (NGO) for persons with visual disabilities or at the hall of the said NGO. I seldom get a chance to watch a film with persons without disabilities. Most of the films the NGO chose are popular and commercial. I have limited opportunity to access to non-mainstream films. But in this Film Festival, I had a chance to watch non-mainstream human rights documentaries with persons without disability.

Anthony, person with hearing disability

Thanks to the Human Commons for relaying information about AIHK’s Human Rights Documentary Film Festival to me. I watched “Hooligan Sparrow” (The 6th Amnesty International Hong Kong Human Rights Documentary Film Festival). Accessible captions in Chinese were available which indicated the sound effects such as the sound of wind. It thus facilitated my understanding of the documentary. However, I found it difficult to understand some of the concepts and buzzwords. I hope that providing accessible captions in film screenings can become a more common practice. In addition to accessible captions, sign language interpretation is important for persons with hearing disabilities and with a lower education level.
