Event description
It’s time for Australia to step up its game and provide audio description on free-to-air television.

About this Event

Join researchers from the Digital Disability program in The Centre for Culture and Technology as they launch their project "Audio description on Australian television".

Australia is the only English Speaking country in the OECD not to offer audio description on free to air television effectively excluding people with vision impairments from accessing television.

However, researchers at Curtin University have discovered audio description might be the key to unlocking the future of television.
