The National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute is collaborating with the Smith-Kettlewell Video Description Research and Development Center to host a stakeholder focus group on advanced concepts in video description. The focus group will be held during the 2012 NFB National Convention in Dallas, Texas. This session will include demonstrations of innovative description technologies, discussions about the changing role of video in education and training, and opportunities for participants to provide detailed structured input to Smith-Kettlewell’s technology-development process. People who should consider attending include students, educators, parents, media professionals, and other consumers of video description. There is only space for twenty attendees in this session, and participants must register in advance for this important meeting.
The focus group will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, July 1 (the exact meeting room will be announced prior to the convention). Those interested in participating in this focus group should send an e-mail to Beth Braun at the NFB Jernigan Institute (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information:
