Describing Audio Description

Hidden in the dark of theatres or on undetected film soundtracks, audio describers are writers you’re unlikely to encounter – or even think about – until you need their skills. But what does it take to write between the words and paint a picture so people who are blind or vision impaired can get the most out of art? For the Digital Writers’ Festival, professional audio describers Will McRostie and Lara Torr turn their eyes to images from the internet to demonstrate the need for this very niche skill set – and just what fun it can be.
