Our goal is to keep talking about audio description until the response is – that’s the accessibility service that allows blind and visually impaired patrons to enjoy theatre. We hope that this program demystifies what audio description is and helps spread the word among all theatre goers that audio description is available across the country for everyone that would like to use the service. We will also share feedback that we’ve heard from blind and low vision theatre goers from our combined experiences with audio description. We will answer any questions that workshop attendees have from how to become a describer, to how to start a description program or how to increase participation from AD users at your theatre.
