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.
