PINA launches service for deaf viewers

Public International News Ariddia, the Ariddian-based 24-hour international news channel which broadcasts to countries around the world, has announced it is adapting to the needs of deaf viewers.

PINA broadcasts in French already come with subtitles in English and Wymgani (and vice-versa), but now a new feature has been added to the international news channel. Access to the news will be facilitated for deaf viewers, thanks to an interpreter relaying the news in Ariddian French Sign Language (LSFA), virtually identical to the international French Sign Language.

PINA hopes to provide this service in English in the near future, at least on its website video broadcasts.
