Bringing online and theatre performances to life through professional audio description.
From scripting the description, to the final delivery, either live or recorded, - years of experience ensure that timing, choice of vocabulary, scene sensitivity and careful delivery are all considered. Comprehensive theatre introductions paint a picture of set, character and costumes, and provide useful credits and other information.
These interactive tours allow visitors to visualise the works or objects on display through descriptions of size, shape, colour, perspective, subject, use, texture and other features. The describer works alongside venue staff to cover key context and background information.
Enabling a hands-on experience through a theatre touch tour or gallery and museum handling session.

We work closely with Curators and Learning staff in Galleries and Museums to encourage blind and partially sighted visitors to explore art-works and objects by touch, with audio description.
