Text-to-speech audio description to a Polish feature film | | AVT LabAVT Lab

by Agnieszka Szarkowska

 

"...The overall results of the present study are in line with the RNIB report on the use of synthetic speech by blind and partially sighted people, which states that “listeners prefer natural sounding speech, both in comparing natural speech to synthetic speech and in comparing different synthetic voices” (Cryer and Home 2008: 7). It is worth noting, however, that while the visually impaired viewers in this study find natural speech preferable, many of them would find synthetic speech acceptable. ..."

Museum Access Consortium: Guidelines for Accessible Presentations | City Access New York

"The Museum Access Consortium hosts professional development seminars concerning public and programmatic access for people with disabilities. MAC strives for all presentations to meet standards for accessibility, so that all attendees can participate fully. Remember that disabilities are not always obvious. You should assume that there are audience members who will need accommodations to take advantage of visual aids, or to discern what is said. And everyone benefits from clear presentations! We strongly urge presenters and host organizations to adhere to these guidelines. ..."

Le avventure del Piccolo Burattino - con audio descrizioni fatte con CapScribe

Ho aggiunto audiodescrizioni alla prima metà del video "Le avventure del Piccolo Burattino.wmv" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9Hj4cIOudE  usando CapScribe: cfr. http://www.inclusivemedia.ca/captionme/  . Le audio descrizioni sono in inglese, perché la sintesi vocale di CapScribe che le genera a partire di testi scritti ha soltanto voci inglesi per ora, e non mi sembrava il caso far pronunciare alla Stanlio e Olio descrizioni scritte in italiano.
È anche possibile scaricare una cartella zippata con tutti i file separati originali che creano l'audiodescrizione sincronizzata da https://rapidshare.com/files/1779393468/pinocchiomuto.zip?bin=1 .

UDL - Equal Access in General Curriculum

UDL - Equal Access in General Curriculum | Multimedia Accessibility | Scoop.it

Once we understand that our students with learning difficulties incite better instructional design for all students, we begin to see that the curriculum itself also needs to be re-evaluated - It cannot continue to be a "one size fits most" approach (Rose, Meyer, Hitchcock, 2005).

Grazie a Marinella - http://www.scoop.it/u/marinella47 - per il suggerimento!

 

(però è strano associare "Universal Access" ai prodotti Apple: vedi ciò che ne dice Richard Stallman nell'intervista in http://www.multimedia.ethz.ch/misc/2011/stallman (0:45 - 1:08):

"... Now let's look at Apple products such as the iPhone and the iBad. These products are jails. The users called them jails when they started talking about "jailbreaking" them. These products are designed (...) so that users can't even install whatever program they wish to install..." . )

European Parliament releases “nonexistent” coordinators’ minutes on ACTA | ACTA

November 1, 2011

By Ante

 

"The European Parliament’s register released the International Trade (INTA) committee’s coordinators’ minutes on ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement). Prior to the release, the Parliament’s services denied the existence of these minutes four times. Only after the FFII provided proof that the documents do exist, the Parliament released them. The minutes document illegal decisions..."

 

(added here because copyright issues, which are part of ACTA, almost always affect accessibility)

Una somma difficile da calcolare - Superabile, ottobre 2011 - 1 | Accaparlante e Centro Documentazione Handicap | Multimedia Accessibility | Scoop.it

10/10/2011 - Claudio Imprudente

 

"...Di pochi giorni fa la notizia di uno studio condotto a Piacenza dalla ricercatrice Caterina Martinazzoli, che sottolinea la doppia condizione di svantaggio vissuta dai bambini allo stesso tempo "migranti" e disabili e i problemi inediti che la loro presenza pone alle figure docenti. Come è già avvenuto e tuttora avviene con la "semplice" disabilità, la condizione di disabile-straniero ci garantisce un punto di osservazione privilegiato per vedere non solo se e come la scuola sarà in grado di modellarsi per riuscire a gestire e valorizzare anche situazioni così problematiche, ma per valutare la risposta della società nel suo complesso (l'idea, da me espressa più volte, che la disabilità sia un potente "monitor sociale"). ..."
