About the Presenter

Dr. Joel Snyder is known internationally as one of the world's first "audio describers," a pioneer in the field of audio description. Since 1981, he has introduced audio description techniques in over 40 states and 63 countries and has made hundreds of live events, media projects, and museums accessible.

The American Council of the Blind published Dr. Snyder's book The Visual Made Verbal—A Comprehensive Training Manual and Guide to the History and Applications of Audio Description, now available as an audio book voiced by Dr. Snyder, in screen reader accessible formats, and in Braille.

This webinar was organized with the assistance of ATA's Audiovisual Division.
