Live Audio Description at the Vancouver Pride Parade

Kristy and Shawn, wearing fake mustaches and rainbow boas, under the Accessibility Tent at the Pride Parade

Vocaleye live description and well-trained sighted guides make mainstream arts events around Vancouver accessible to people with vision loss. Shawn and I got so much more out of the colour and noise of the Vancouver Pride Parade thanks to Rick and Aileen's animated commentary - Everything from rainbows and unicorns to butt-less chaps and nipple pasties. And a huge shout out to our sighted guide, Rick L., for getting us to the accessibility zone when our shuttle unexpectedly dropped us off blocks short of the designated stop and for getting us back to the Skytrain after the parade. No shuttle in sight, road closures and unhelpful police officers could have made that adventure a disaster. Photo shows Shawn and Kristy sitting under the accessibility tent on Beach Avenue. They are wearing colorful boas around their necks and fake mustaches. This photo also has ALT text description for people who use screen readers.
