The Corpus

The VIW corpus is made up of audio descriptions in different languages of the same short film, and it incorporate a search engine (forthcoming). It currently includes 10 professional audio descriptions in English, 10 professional audio descriptions in Spanish and 10 professional audio descriptions in Catalan. All 30 audio descriptions were commissioned to professionals, who were remunerated. It also includes 10 audio descriptions in Spanish and 7 audio descriptions in Catalan made by students (text only, not recorded audio/video files). We hope to expand it in the near future with more audio descriptions. You are invited to read the section “Contribute”.
