Talking Tech for October 27 2015

Another Great Game: The Blind Legend


Blind Fold Balling from Blind Kids Friendly Software


A really great free game with in-app purchases. 


Attention, all Audio Description users! In Sydney


Ericsson Broadcast and Media Services creates audio description for:

•       Feature films

•       Short films

•       Promotional DVDs

•       Film festivals

•       Online videos

•       Television


We want to hear what you think of the examples of Audio Description you’ve experienced so far, including anything produced by us (or when we were operating as Red Bee Media Australia). If you haven’t yet viewed any programs or films with our Audio Description, we’d like to show you some brief examples and hear any feedback you have to offer.


We invite you to attend a Consumer Forum on Saturday 14th November so we can hear your views and exchange ideas in an informal, friendly discussion at our Sydney office, based in Rosebery.


Attending from Ericsson will be in-house audio describers Jo Ellis and Frances Mathey, Client Liaison Manager Iain Humphrey and a member of our technical team to set up our clips and record the event.


Please note, any recording of our discussion will be used strictly within Ericsson for reference purposes only.


This event is hosted solely by Ericsson and not in conjunction with any broadcaster, content producer or legislative body.


The discussion will be followed by light refreshments.

Places are limited, so please RSVP if you’d like to come along and contribute to the discussion!
