Audio Description: Translating moving images with Elaine Lillian Joseph

30 June, 2022
– 30 June, 2022

In this online interactive session, we will explore different types of experimental audio description for blind and/or partially sighted audiences and how to centre those users in future described work. The event consists of a talk followed by a Q&A and a collaborative workshop working with material from the LUX collection. The film material will be sent ahead of the workshop.

Elaine Lillian Joseph is an Afro-Caribbean audio describer for ITV and freelance describer for queer events (Bar Woteva, Melaneyes). By day she works on the nation’s favourite soaps (Coronation Street), period dramas (Sanditon, Victoria) and reality TV shows and by night she provides live commentary of cabarets and dance shows.

Photo description: A bespectacled Afro Caribbean woman in a white strappy dress with frills. Maroon locs with light red curly tips cascade over her shoulders reaching her elbows. She’s crossed legged, sitting on a picnic blanket in a park. The sun soaks her brown skin making her smile broadly. Oversized silver hooped earrings dangle from her ears, matching a silver ankh necklace.
