The blind or visually impaired often miss out on the visual information conveyed through videos. The vast majority of online video material is currently not accessible to millions of visually-impaired people who would significantly benefit from improved access to videos for education, employment, and entertainment purposes.

This work addresses two major issues:

  1. Enhancing video accessibility for blind or visually-impaired individuals.
  2. Generating well-structured training data to advance the state of the art in video understanding.
