Become an Audio Describer
Do you enunciate well?
How good is your command of English (or your local language) and your vocabulary?
Do you want to provide a valuable service for people with disabilities?
Arts Access is working to provide audio describer training services. Currently, you can learn more about national organizations that train and use audio describers. Consult the Audio Description Project's "Audio Description Educaion and Training Resources" page. If training is offered, you will probably have to "pass" an audition. They will want to know what your voice sounds like. If you would like to find out when Arts Access, Inc. plans to hold Audio Description Training sessions, please contact Debbie Hippler at Info@ArtsAccessInc.org or (919).332.9978.
The fundamental rule of audio description is, "Say what you see."
