VIW (Visuals Into Words) is a project funded by the Spanish “Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad” (FFI2015-62522- ERC) that aims to research audio description (AD) from a multilingual and multimodal corpus perspective.
The VIW corpus is built upon the short movie “What Happens While”, available in English and dubbed into Catalan and Spanish. It contains audio descriptions in English, Catalan, and Spanish by both professionals and students, and follows an open access policy.
This website provides access to the corpus and allows for different types of searches and visualizations on the AD scripts (excluding final credits for the reasons set forth in the technical documentation).
