CANCELLED: Audio Description: The Visual Made Verbal Exhibitor session McCormick Place Convention Center
N132
Description :

Audio Description is a kind of literary art form. It's a type of poetry--a haiku. It provides a verbal version of the visual the visual is made verbal, and aural, and oral. Using words that are succinct, vivid, and imaginative, describers convey the visual image from television and film that is not fully accessible to a significant segment of the population and not fully realized by the rest of us--the rest of us, sighted folks who see but who may not observe.

This session will introduce participants to the fundamentals of Audio Description as they apply to educational media and children’s books and how description can build literacy. The presentation will be the first public discussion of the demonstration of this concept in both 1) an elaborate audio described tour and workshop with reading teachers at the Connecticut Children’s Museum in New Haven, CT, and 2) media description strategies for educational material developed by an expert panel assembled by the American Foundation for the Blind (Mr. Snyder was a member of that panel).
