Social innovation at its best with ARTIS Project

ARTIS Project , is an Italian company founded in 2007 and incubated at the Incubator ICult BIC Lazio in Viterbo that produces all the subtitles for the deaf and audio descriptions for the blind. They are the main content provider of MovieReading, the global patented solution allowing for the individual distribution of audiodescription and subtitles at cinema worldwide.

ARTIS Project is among the leading companies providing audiodescription for blind and visually impaired people and real time captions (respeaking) and subtitles for deaf and hard of hearing people. They work with cinema distributors, cinema productions, public and private bodies. After allowing for over two years, to all deaf people, to read subtitles of over 150 first-run movies, MovieReading today experiences the full accessibility of the film at the cinema for blind people.

It consists in the creation of additional audio tracks explaining all the visual elements the visually impaired (blind or partially insighted) persons cannot access, such as costumes, setting, colours, facial expressions, physical characteristics and actions.
All you need is a smartphone or a tablet, and of course a ticket… MovieReading does the rest!
At the movies, simply connect the earphones to the phone and put it in airplane mode to prevent ringing during projection.
More recently, Artis Project has developed a brand new department specializing in sign language and is also actively developing advanced augmented reality solutions for culture and tourism.
