Audio Description
Through transmitters and headsets, volunteers deliver live audio description to theater patrons like this girl.

Imagine trying to enjoy a work of art, a film, or live performance, but not being able to see it.

For those with visual impairments, audio description reveals crucial information in scenery and movements on stage that seeing patrons are able to appreciate without a thought. Audio description enhances and complements the work so those who are visually-impaired or blind gain a complete understanding of what is before them.

MindsEye translates vision into audio.

MindsEye has been committed to connecting those who are visually-impaired to the news and entertainment they need for over 45 years through 24-hour radio broadcasts of national and local print media. Their Audio Description project was instituted in the fall of 2016 and has provided description and trainings to a multitude of Saint Louis’s essential cultural institutions, including: The Muny, the Repertory Theatre of Saint Louis, the Saint Louis Zoo, COCA, Shakespeare Festival, Circus Flora, the Missouri History Museum, the Black Rep, the Saint Louis Arch and Stifel Theatre. And! Most Recently the St. Louis Blues at Enterprise Center!

By providing Audio Description for your patrons, you are not just providing access to the arts, you are also committing to building a diverse, vibrant, and inclusive community. MindsEye’s audio description means that every person who attends a theater production, museum exhibit, or event, regardless of visual impairment, has the freedom to have a rewarding experience. Going to see a play becomes uncomplicated: The attendee borrows a headset, free of charge with a ticket, and listens as the MindsEye audio describer explains costumes, sets, and on-stage action. The audio describer is careful never to talk over the dialogue and to leave interpretation up to the listener.

This service transforms the experience for a person with visual-disabilities. It takes it from a potentially confusing and isolating event, to one of full enjoyment.
