The following project has as main objective to connect the journalism practice with the field of producing accessible resources that enables people with hearing and visual disabilities to be included on the journalistic, educational, cultural and entertainment contexts in Brazilian society. The main resources present in this project will be audio description (AD) and subtitling for deaf and impaired hearing people (SDH). These resources are required on opening channels in Brazil since 2000 when the Law nº 10.098 was approved called Accessibility Law. Besides the mandatory of the sensorial accessible resources on opening channels, other acts and standards have been clarifying Brazilian society about sensorial and physical accessibility. Nowadays other digital, cultural and entertainment environments have already implanted AD and SDH in their products. Thereby, we will divide the steps of this project as follow: a study about audiovisual translation resources focused on sensorial accessibility (AD and SDH), deepening on accessible Web (a contemporaneous theme in Brazil) and we will propose updates and feed of contents for the blog Mídia Acessível e Tradução Audiovisual (Accessible Media and Audiovisual Translation), a research group registered at CNPq since 2013 and its Facebook page. These social media channels have been active for more than three years but there are not any young journalism researchers who are exclusively dedicated for the updates of the content in a depth manner and with a steady agenda.
