We are looking to grow our audio description team! Audio describers depict orally what happens on the screen or on stage for the blind and visually impaired so that they can enjoy audio-visual shows, live performances or sports events. They produce audio description scripts for programmes and events and use their voice to record them.
What skills do I need to be an Audio Describer?
Attention to detail
Pronunciation techniques - must be able to pronounce words correctly for them to be understood
Synchronisation with mouth movements
Punctuality - if you’re describing a theatre show you must be on time
We are looking to find volunteers who already posses this skillset, however we are also open to training new volunteers who may be interested!
