An Introduction to Audio Description Equipment

Hi blog readers, Lynn here to tell you a little bit about VSA Texas Audio Description Equipment. In an earlier blog, I talked about Audio Description and what it takes to be an Audio Describer (you can read that here), but I didn’t tell you about the equipment that makes this magic happen. Just a refresher, Audio Description is the verbal translation of visual information to make theater, television, films, museum exhibits, and outdoor events more enjoyable for people with low or no vision. That being said, in this video you will get a quick taste of what equipment is needed for the patron to hear the audio description without disrupting the patrons around him/her.

If you are interested in learning more about Audio Description and the equipment, VSA Texas has scheduled an Audio Description Taster Workshop on Wednesday, March 30th, from 10:00am-2:00pm, in the Kodosky Lounge at The Long Center for the Performing Arts. Please RSVP to or call 512-454-9912. This is a free event! Come join the fun!
