The Art and Science of Inclusive Media

By

The Chang School of Continuing Education at Ryerson University is the first school in Canada to develop a research-based, post-secondary program that teaches students the art and science of audio description, The Star reports. The new program is aimed at training media professionals to "comply with Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications regulations introduced this year that require all prime-time television to include described video — also known as audio description — for people who are blind, have low vision, or developmental disabilities that make it difficult to follow plot lines or read facial cues," according to The Star. Head over to The Star to learn more about this unique program, and how the first students are tackling this new challenge.
