WhatsCine is a free application for smartphone and tablet (iOS and Android) that allows to bring cultural leisure, film and television to people with audiovisual disabilities, without interfering with the rest of the audience. The solution offers a software that integrates in the same application, free for the user and three accessibility systems: Audiodescription, Adapted Subtitling and Spanish Sign Language. Other possibilities of the tool are that it includes additional languages and original versions.
The WhatsCine technology can be used in movie theaters, with a server connected to a closed Wi-Fi network, which contains the necessary software to host, manage and synchronize the accessibility files of all audiovisual content, previously created by certified centers. The synchronization process, through a complex mathematical model, recognizes which content is being broadcast and launches the chosen accessibility at the exact point where it is located.
In the case of television Whatscine is stored in the cloud, and works through the home Wi-Fi network, and also by 3G and 4G. The user must only select the contents of the application from the billboard of the application and download the chosen accessibility to his device, remaining ready for use from that moment.
The WhatsCine project emerged in 2013 with the collaboration of two Spanish organizations, WhatsCine and the Carlos III University of Madrid. I have received several awards, such as the 2015 Queen Letizia Award.
