AUDIO EYES: HOW ENGINEERS HELP BLIND INDIVIDUALS SEE TV AND FILM
On Tuesday, August 28th, at the SAE Institute in Hollywood, the Audio Engineering Society, Los Angeles Section will host a presentation on audio description.
AD, as it is becoming known as, is the practice of adding a descriptive voice-over track to video media in order to relate the visual elements on screen (such as action, setting, and character appearance) so that blind consumers can fully experience video media. Experience the difference that Audio Description makes when seeing the screen is not possible. Learn how to measure the quality of a descriptive track. Discuss how technology and the trend toward automation impacts the role of audio engineers in this specialized aspect of media localization.
