Update: NOTE PAD MARCH 2014
The full version of note pad can be downloaded from this page. Here are some of the highlights of this month's issue.
Directory of Blind and Partially Sighted Advisers
Plans are underway to set up a Directory of Blind and Partially Sighted Advisers on ADA's website. The directory will be similar in form and function to the Directory of Freelance Describers which is already on the website. The aim is to give blind and partially sighted members of ADA who act as freelance consultants, trainers and advisers - especially in relation to audio description provision and the production of audio guides - the same opportunity as describers to promote their services via the website.
More information and an entry form will follow in the next couple of months. If anyone would like to receive full details and an entry form when available, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In memorian: John Webb, 1947 -2014
Describers throughout the UK have lost an ally in John Webb who died last January. Actor, Equity Council member and champion of performers' rights, John was influential in obtaining the 'yes' vote that secured Equity recognition for audio describers.
Describer Pat Hayes, who worked closely with John, writes: " ... He was a great support of audio description and we have lost a good friend."
VocalEyes is seeking a Programme Manager for its increasing scope of work with museums, galleries and heritage sites. The exciting new role will be to support clients in making their services inclusive, engaging and enjoyable for blind and partially sighted people.
