Subtitles are essential for producing accessible media content, however generally the focus has been on developing content for 2D displays. Although most attempts at moving subtitles into an immersive environment have involved simply rendering the 2D subtitles into the 360º display, rather than considering a new approach.

While subtitling in 360º is now proving to be one of the most challenging formats, this workshop aims to present the many challenges of Immersive Subtitling, particularly for 360º media content. The workshop will also present an example approach as part of the ImAc project.
