Tiflokommenting. What do we know about it?
How can a person with vision problems understand what is happening on the screen, on the stage?
Tiflocommenting is — a description of objects, phenomena and actions, without which it is difficult to perceive a film, picture or performance. Throughout the world, tiflok helps people with vision problems get acquainted with visual arts, cinema and theater. In some countries, all films that appear on the big screen are required to contain captions and TV comments by law.
Nevertheless, children sometimes remain deprived. Not only are they poorly sighted or even blind, they are also deprived of the ability to «watch» even cartoons.
On February 11, the presentation of the book “Funny teachings of Khoja Nasriddin” and the premiere of the play “Oh, this Nasreddin” using tiflocommentation took place at the State Puppet Theater of Uzbekistan.
The children’s book «Funny teachings of Khoja Nasriddin» is the result of a joint work of the Art and Culture Development Foundation under the Ministry of culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the German company Cultur-Cooperation International e.V with the support of the Ministry of Preschool Education of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
40 stories of Khoja Nasreddin are written in Uzbek, Russian, German and English languages. And the children themselves drew for the book.
The book accompanied by a CD with an audio recording of stories voiced by famous Uzbek and German actors. Thereby, the book is now available for visually impaired and blind children.
