Project title *
Telefonica’s aim is to ensure that television services can be accessed and used to the greatest extent possible by all people, regardless of their ability or disability. Movistar+ 5S is a first step towards accomplishing this aim. It is a service that allows people with sensory disabilities access TV content (movies, TV series and documentaries) in Telefónica’s pay-TV platform. Thanks to this solution, they can access TV content with no additional cost via three options of accessibility solutions: Subtitling, audio description or sign language. The service can be implemented either through a smartphone or a tablet, while the audiovisual content runs on the television or a computer. This system allows people with sensory disabilities enjoy their television leisure-time on their own or with their relatives and friends without interfering in the enjoyment of others.
