Read session report

Now more than ever there is an increasing demand for accessibility to be at the forefront of producers thinking for television, theatre and film. But, what are the barriers to this and what are the possibilities? This session will explore these topics in a panel discussion and will bring you some of the most cutting edge techniques in accessibility innovation such as:

The Rationale Method of Audio Description utilises the skills of a beatboxer and vocal percussion to give a richer soundscape to people with visual impairment. It is ideal for enhancing accessibility for children with visual impairment across the world.

‘Dynamic captioning’ means that captioning could appear anywhere on the stage and could be presented in a number of ways. It is controlled by the gesticulation of characters and therefore is much more in sync with the text delivery of the performers. It also means that that the captions could be attached to the performers or could be detached from them at any point in the performance.

Be a part of the discussion about the future of Accessibility.

This session begins with a presentation by changemaker Heather Lacey
