S1E99 - 20221115 - Tuesday Topics - The Gala and other things audio description.

Last year the American Council of the Blind with the leadership of its Audio Description Project (ADP) held the first annual Audio Description Gala. Now we are approaching the date of the second annual Gala. It's bigger and better this year! What is it? Who's involved? How can you participate? Join us on November 15 at 7 PM Eastern time on ACB Media One to find out the answers to all these questions and many more. What is the Audio Description Project? What else do they do? What are their priorities for this year? What are the "project's" recent accomplishments?

Both co-chairs of our Audio Description Project will join us. Kim Charlson is our immediate past President of ACB and will tell us about work that is being done to start the process of codifying standards for audio description. Carl Richardson knows more about old movies than I ever dreamed of knowing and can speak to issues that operate for folks with hearing loss as well as people who are blind. We will leave time for questions about the gala and the Project as well.
