Describing Complex Images
Hi All, Another topic of discussion in today's Constituent Group meeting was how to describe complex images. Specifically, Giovanni Duarte of Devry had asked about describing images in the health science area, e.g., how to adequately describe a heart adequately. Here's an excellent resource from the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM): "Effective Practices for Description of Science Content within Digital Talking Books" http://ncam.wgbh.org/experience_learn/educational_media/stemdx Also, I mentioned in the meeting (prior to Karen Sorenson's arrival) that Karen gave an excellent training at the NorthWest Managers of Education Technology conference last week. Here's her page on this topic: http://www.pcc.edu/resources/instructional-support/access/alternative-te... Karen, let us know if you have other relevant resources. The exercise you had participants do, organizing into groups and working to describe challenging images, was extremely effective I thought.
