Accessibility in Film, Television and Interactive Media

October 14, 2017 - October 15, 2017

The number of visually impaired people in the UK is expected to rise to 4 million by 2050, while by 2035 it is estimated that there will be 15.6 million of people with hearing loss in the UK. Such statistics reflect the urgency in which film, television and interactive media industries need to reflect on the diversity of their audiences as well as measures to increase both accessibility as well as foster inclusivity.

The varied programme of this conference seeks to promote communication between researchers, stakeholders in the creative industries, accessibility services, and audiences. It will be a great networking opportunity, providing an interdisciplinary forum which integrates approaches from the arts, humanities, engineering and social sciences that study both traditional and innovative approaches to accessibility.

The event is organised by the Enhancing Audio Description Project team with audio panels organised under the umbrella of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) North of England section. The organisers of the conference are Dr Mariana Lopez, Dr Gavin Kearney, and Krisztian Hofstadter.

A Sound Effect gives you easy access to an absolutely huge sound effects catalog from a myriad of independent sound creators, all covered by one license agreement - a few highlights:
  • Household Abandoned Doors Play Track 1400+ sounds included, 53 mins total
    Rated 4.50 out of 5
    $120 $60

    Finding the right door sound can be a pain, thus Abandoned Doors was recorded with that need in mind.

    All the 1400+ sounds were recorded in abandoned mansions and houses with unique sonic characteristics, in stereo, usually from two perspectives (inside the room and in the hallway), allowing you a great deal of choice and offering sonic diversity.

    Additionally, splitting the stereo tracks into mono will give you two more slightly different perspectives on each sound.

    The Abandoned Doors library offers a multitude of door recordings, ranging from heavy wooden doors found in turn of the century mansions to cheap old doors in an abandoned warehouse, being opened, closed, slammed, knocked on, kicked, banged on, and even hit with a bat.

    Whilst most door libraries simply name files ‘door open 01’, etc, Abandoned Doors has been carefully tagged with rich SoundMiner metadata and multiple keywords, giving you a clearer image of what a file contains just by reading the title. For more information on what kinds of sounds are present in the library, feel free to consult the metadata file down below.

    Buy Abandoned Doors today and augment your sonic toolbox with over 1400+ door related sound effects, recorded at 24bit/96kHz in unique and inaccessible locations.
