About the project

The practice of providing video products with special audio descriptions is widespread abroad, but in Ukraine only a few such films have these. During the masterclass, the experts will explain the process of creating audio descriptions (using special computer applications; adhering to the standards of audio description; editing audio tracks) and provide an opportunity to make short audio descriptions of video clips yourself.
