Music videos can be experienced by blind people

The TAB Foundation, together with Facebook Thailand, BBDO Bangkok and the AI company Kunana, has developed the online service "Visible Track", which enables blind people to enjoy music videos. To do so, users insert a music video from YouTube or Faceboook Watch on the website. Using AI, the online service recognizes people, objects and activities in the videos and translates them into additional sound effects and audio descriptions. "Visible Track" does not attempt to create an equal experience of music videos from sighted people, but to give blind people their own way of access.
