VITAC was thrilled to provide closed captions for the inaugural year of the American Council of the Blind’s Audio Description Awards Gala.

Celebrating the best-of-the-best within the art and science of inclusive audio-described media, the gala promoted the positive impact that audio description has made in the lives of people with disabilities. The event, hosted by voice talent actor and audio description narrator Thomas Reid, included special guests Jason Momoa, Ahmed Fareed, Charlie Cox, Nesta Cooper, Christian Camargo, and Blake Stadnik, among others.

This year’s award categories included:

  • Outstanding Audio Description Visionary
  • Audio Description Game Changers
  • Outstanding Achievement in Audio Description Innovation
  • Outstanding Achievement Audio Description Contribution Impact for Live Events
  • Outstanding Achievement Audio Description Accessibility Contribution

The gala also was designed to raise funds to support ACB’s Audio Description Project (ADP), which advocates for the use of high-quality audio descriptions in television, movies, performing arts, museums, educational materials, and other venues where the presentation of visual media is critical to the understanding and appreciation of the content. The ADP sponsors a broad range of activities designed to build awareness of audio description among the general public as well as its principal users − people who are blind or have low vision.

The American Council of the Blind’s 2021 Audio Description Awards Gala was a free and virtual event, airing live at ADAwardsGala.org and on Peacock and heard on ACB Media 6 on Thursday, Nov. 18.
