This Saturday March 1st, VDRDC Director Dr. Joshua Miele will address attendees of the American Foundation for the Blind Leadership Conference during, “Putting the ‘VI’ in Videos: New Tools and Techniques for Describing Video Content.” Dr. Miele will be joined by co- presenter and DLN member, Matthew Kaplowitz, president of Bridge Multimedia in New York City.

Dr. Miele will share the groundbreaking work of the VDRDC’s “cloud- based” video description digital tools, including YouDescribe.org and the many advantages of flexible third- party/ user- generated video description content. YouDescribe.org allows for the easy creation, storage, and sharing of streaming video description content.

Held February 27- March 1, 2014, the AFB Leadership Conference serves as a gathering and think- tank for leaders in the blindness/ VI field. An intensive video description institute is being held in conjunction with the conference.
