Virgin Atlantic Entertainment For Visually Impaired

Virgin Atlantic  has become the first airline to offer entertainment catered to visually impaired passengers.
In 1991 , the airline became the first to reveal individual screens on the back of each customer’s seat and it continues to offer a wide range of films, TV programmes and games as part of its inflight entertainment.
Despite the success of the seat back screens, the touch screen surface and challenging navigational system can generate barriers for passengers who have limited visibility. But with the launch of its new initiative, Virgin Atlantic will be able to provide a specialised service for customers who require it.
Using pioneering technology developed by Bluebox, the new kit features specially adapted iPads which have audio descriptions for all entertainment features.
