Re: resources on and examples of audio description

I don't know how much help this could be, but there was a guy from I think
the University of Toronto who was developing an audio description method
where you could write the description, and then an electronic voice read it.
I don't understand the technical details of it, but if you could find him,
I'm sure he does. His name is Charles Silverman.

Subject: [WebAIM] resources on and examples of audio description


I'd appreciate folks assistance on the following items relative to WCAG
2.0 checkpoint 1.2.5 (level AA) in where audio descriptions must be
provided for video content in situations where the audio track doesn't
convey this.

1. resources on the process of developing/producing audio descriptions
2. examples of sites that have implemented audio description
I would also value any first-hand experience from folks who have
implemented audio description.
