Link to the course description is HERE

Description is a literary art form. It’s a type of poetry — a haiku. It provides a verbal version of the visual: the visual is made verbal, aural, and oral. - See more at: http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/blog/2010/06/01/audio-description-for-the-arts-a-new-free-course/#sthash.WZEtXFus.8V9VHSZJ.dpuf

Description is a literary art form. It’s a type of poetry — a haiku. It provides a verbal version of the visual: the visual is made verbal, aural, and oral. Using succinct, vivid, and imaginative describers, you can convey the visual image 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 being sighted folks who see, but who may not observe. Audio describers provide services in various multimedia settings, including theater, dance, opera, television, film/TV, exhibits, museums, and educational venues — but also at circuses, rodeos, ice skating exhibitions, and at a myriad of sports events.  This unique course will introduce participants to the principles of Audio Description, how to produce quality description, and the importance of close communication with the “end users” – people who are blind or have low vision and all people who support this innovative use of technology to provide greater media access. - See more at: http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/blog/2010/06/01/audio-description-for-the-arts-a-new-free-course/#sthash.WZEtXFus.8V9VHSZJ.dpuf

  3. Electronic devices like television have a deep effect on our lives. Now we can see transmission of different channels by only sitting in our drawing rooms. And it is only because the men behind these inventions took education in these fields and then applied their writing service knowledge to make such wonders.
