Audio description refers to an additional narration track intended primarily for blind and visually impaired consumers of visual media (including television and film, dance, opera, and visual art).
It consists of a narrator talking through the presentation, describing what is happening on the screen or stage during the natural pauses in the audio, and sometimes during dialogue, if necessary.
Bríd Ní Ghruagáin is an experienced audio describer with Arts and Disability Ireland who has been working with us on UNWRAPPED 2013 and will be providing audio description for the event. Bríd is also Director of Tí Aitreo a professional drama company committed to producing new Irish-language work in theatre, on radio and on television.
For further information on the audio description available, please contact Victoria Durrer, South Dublin County Council Arts Office at 01 414 9270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
