Audio Description: The Visual Made Verbal
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
2:00 P.M. to 3:30 P.M. EST
ADA Audio Conference Series
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, a member of the ADA National Network
This session will provide an overview of the “Fundamentals of Audio Description” (developed by Dr. Snyder) and access awareness, particularly with respect to people who are blind or have low vision. Audio Description is a translation of images to words—the visual is made verbal—and has been shown to provide access to the wide range of media and arts (television, film, performing arts, museums) that comprise any culture.
The principal constituency for Audio Description is the underserved population of people who are blind or have a vision impairment; in the United States, there are over 21 million people who are blind or have difficulty seeing even with correction (American Foundation for the Blind, 2008).
