KPI-RRI-Kino Media work together to fulfill the rights of disability groups

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI), the Public Broadcasting Institution (LPP) Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) and the Kino Media Foundation are working together to produce broadcast content that fulfills the rights of disability groups.

Central KPI Member for Institutional Affairs Amin Shabana explained that the three parties would work together to add Indonesian language audio descriptions to the production of radio film scenes so that they could be accessed by groups with visual impairments.

“This audio description is given for non-dialogue film scenes. “Hopefully, people with visual disabilities will also feel the atmosphere that occurs in this scene,” said Amin in a press release in Jakarta, Thursday.

According to Amin, awareness of adding audio descriptions has actually been made by Indonesian filmmakers. However, the three parties will further optimize this, so that the rights of people with disabilities can be fulfilled in getting optimal access to broadcast content.

“With positive synergy from broadcasting stakeholders, this radio film program will provide wider benefits,” said Amin.

Chairman of the Central KPI, Ubaidillah, added that KPI had actually conveyed the radio film program initiative as a superior program to the ASEAN Secretariat. This is an inclusive broadcast content initiative in digital broadcasting.

KPI has also received aspirations from various disability groups, for example for the existence of sign language on television.

The hope is that, apart from receiving broadcast access, disabled groups will also get the opportunity to take part in the world of broadcasting.

“I hope that innovative programs will improve broadcast quality and also broadcast affordability for as many community groups as possible, still paying attention to applicable regulations and not disturbing the interests of friends in the disabled community,” said Ubaidillah.
