At the initiative of the VISIO Foundation, all books for 3-5 year olds and 6-8 year olds will be described in audio, under the artistic guidance of Dune Cherville, so that they are fully accessible to visually impaired children. There is a problem with the inclusion of audio narration techniques
This is especially important because it allows blind or partially blind children to enter children’s literature, which is often portrayed as superior. This device is based on a text written by a professional, then recorded by one or more voices, to tell the story to the child while describing the main visual elements of the book.
The extra originality of the partnership between UNICEF France and the VICO Foundation: Each audio-visual book also benefits from a personalized sound design (sound, music, etc.) so that the child can fully immerse himself in the work environment.
