Collaboration and Accessibility of Live Content

Live cultural events present a great accessibility challenge because all interpretation, captioning and description must be performed on an impromptu basis. By developing and evaluating a number of live Webcasts that include real-time captions, audio descriptions and sign translation, this project addressed questions such as: what tools can assist the interpreter of live events, and how can the interpreter be better integrated as a member of the performance team? Tools that enable extended near-real-time captions and descriptions (developed through the Canadian Network for Inclusive Cultural Exchange) in online environments were enhanced as part of this project and are freely available. The partner on this project was the Centre for Learning Technology (Ryerson University).
