Audio Description – Mrs. Gillian Stanley – 29th April 13

Next time you are watching a play on the television, close your eyes and pretend you are partially sighted or completely blind. You will find that your understanding of the events you hear may well not be sufficient to follow the story. This is when the skill of the audio describer fills in all the missing pieces. With a most gripping example Gillian revealed how her work at the Sheffield Theatres brings a play alive even though you may not be able to see. Her love of, and enthusiasm for the theatre, took her in to this voluntary work which brings great joy to the blind and partially sighted. In telling her story she revealed how rewarding she finds her work. Look out for the audio described mark on the programme – see picture.
