“A new research project headquartered in Toronto. Our main goal is to improve quality by setting standards
for the four fields of accessible media – captioning
, audio description
, and dubbing
. We’ll develop those standards through research and evidence-gathering. Where research or evidence is missing on a certain topic, we’ll carry it out ourselves. We’ll test the finished standards for a year in the real world, then publish them
. Then we’ll develop training and certification programs
for practitioners. ” Not much there yet, but I like this direct approach. I hope legislative advocacy will follow.
