EGEAC Cultura in Lisbon and RTP join together to continue a good practice started last year: for the second consecutive year, the televised broadcast of the Lisbon Popular March Parade, which records significant audiences every year, will have an interpretation in Portuguese Portuguese signage and audiodescription, so that everyone can follow live.
