Our audio description trainings are held in a retreat setting where students and teachers share meals and living space. Each retreat includes 20 hours of formal classes with training relevant to audio description of live theatre, TV, film, and more. We limit our student group to no more than 8 participants to insure individual attention and generous practice time.
The instructors offer feedback and critique from the point of view of both a professional describer (Jan) and a visually impaired consumer (Colleen). Our retreat design encourages group discussion, collaboration and networking. Informal after class socialization promotes the de-mystification of blindness and visual impairment.
