New chapter opens on the power of reading

By Yang Jian


A local studio has produced some 260 movies accessible to the visually impaired thanks to descriptive scripts of non-dialogue scenes.


The barrier-free films are being broadcast at hundreds of community sites to benefit some 83,000 visually impaired people.


“Though we cannot watch, the descriptive scripts endow special charm to the movies,” said Han Ying, who is blind and the director of the Shanghai Voice of Light Audio Description Culture Development Center, the producer of the barrier-free films.


“These movies have become imagery to us.”


The center has made a number of barrier-free movies about the history of the Communist Party of China this year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC.
