If you want your event to be inclusive and engaging for the widest possible audience, audio description can help fill in the blanks for those who can’t participate visually.

I’ve described Sydney’s New Year’s Eve fireworks live on ABC Radio for the City of Sydney for the past 5 years, and can extend my descriptive skills to any event or occasion to make it accessible to those who can’t experience it visually.

I’ll work with your team to develop a glossary of terms to help describe the different elements of your event as it transpires. This can be provided ahead of time as an audio introduction for your low-vision audience, along with details such as environmental descriptions, background information and even tactile tours.

Just send me an email or give me a call so we can discuss what’s possible. No event is too small to be described!

Your understanding of the communication needs of blind and partially sighted persons has been a wonderful asset to the ABC’s audio described broadcast of the New Year’s Eve Welcome to Country and fireworks displays. You produced a comprehensive script which you delivered with great warmth, lightness and improvisation in concert with ABC presenter Tim Brunero. I was completely satisfied with the results.
