Increasing Access for People with Hearing Loss

Christine Ales

With support from the Embassy, Christine Ales spoke at the 5th annual Intermedia Conference on Audiovisual Translation in Warsaw.  Ms. Ales is a renowned expert in live subtitling and voice writing, techniques that allow people with hearing loss to participate in everything from court hearings and television shows to international conferences and proceedings at the United Nations. She was delighted to share her knowledge about best practices in training inter-lingual speakers with the international audience at the event.  To bring Ms. Ales to Poland, the Embassy partnered with the Widzialni Foundation, which works towards greater accessibility for people with disabilities.
