A very important part of this year’s edition of ARSAD – Advanced Research Seminar on Audio Description will focus on reception studies. A whole panel is indeed dedicated to “Reception Research”. Floriane Bardini, translator and doctoral researcher, Ph student at the University of Vic, will present her research entitled Audio description style and film experience: a reception study . The project is a reception study with blind users and users with visual impairment to test different audio description styles. The objective is to determine the best way to deal with cinematic language in audio description in order to provide a better service.
Since its beginning in 2007, the international seminar on audio description ARSAD has been a meeting point for all key agents interested in both research and practice in audio description. Its sixth edition, to be held in Barcelona on March 16th (all day) and 17th (morning) 2017, aims to take stock of recent advances while looking at the future of the field. ARSAD 2017 would like to engage practitioners, researchers, trainers, trainees, regulators, broadcasters, users, social activists, cultural managers, and anyone interested in audio description in a fruitful discussion on the past, present and future of audio description. In this edition TransMedia Catalonia (2014SGR027) teams up with the international project ACT (Accesible Culture and Training) to approach audio description from a myriad of perspectives.
