Summary of the participation:
Every year, the European Union of Broadcasting (UER - EBU) organizes a meeting of experts on access services. The objective is to raise the most important questions during a plenary session that has become, over the years, the best meeting point for those who work in accessibility services through member organizations of the EBU . This event, which took place on November 9th and was attended by more than 85 participants (access services experts), is a great opportunity to meet other professionals who work on accessibility and share projects, exchange best practices, points of view and innovative proposals. This year, Francesc Mas, project manager of Engineering, Research and Innovation of the CCMA, presented the advances of the European project EasyTV through a demonstration stand where users could experiment with the tasks and first results carried out within the EasyTV project, which will increase and improve the automated production of accessible content.
