Disney's Handheld Device Adds Audio Description

I came accross this article written by Heather Hust Rivera. All of us love Disney and something like this could enhance the experience.

Did you know the Disneyland Resort has several services available for guests with visual and hearing disabilities? I am 40 percent deaf, and I didn’t know about Disney’s Handheld Device until last month.

I’ve never been able to hear all of the audio in attractions such as the Enchanted Tiki Room, and I’ve often wondered if I’m missing some of the rich storytelling that Walt Disney Imagineers carefully and creatively incorporate into all of the attractions at the Resort. Now, thanks to Disney’s Handheld Device, I won’t be missing those special details anymore.

Today, I thought I’d give you a quick rundown of this service in case you or someone you know can benefit from this really cool tool.

Disney’s Handheld Device is a palm-sized wireless device that was developed in 2002. The device features several services, including Assistive Listening, which provides amplified audio at 12 attractions, and Handheld Captioning, which displays text for 14 attractions.

A new service was just added yesterday. Audio Description, now available at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, provides narrated audio for guests with visual disabilities by describing visual attraction elements, such as actions, settings and scene changes.

The audio below is from the Audio Description for the Haunted Mansion. We’ve layered in some clips from the attraction to show what the audio is describing.

Audio Description is being offered at 19 attractions at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure parks: Enchanted Tiki Room, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland, ‘it’s a small world’, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pinocchio’s Daring Journey, Snow White’s Scary Adventures, Storybook Land Canal Boats, Disneyland Railroad, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters inspired by Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 2,” “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience”, It’s Tough to be a Bug! inspired by Disney-Pixar’s “A Bug’s Life,” Turtle Talk with Crush inspired by Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Nemo,” Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! inspired by Disney-Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.” and Muppet*Vision 3D – Muppet Vision 3D © The Muppets Studio, LLC.

So, now that you know all about it, where do you get it? Guests with visual or hearing disabilities can obtain a handheld device at the Guest Relations offices, near the entrances to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure parks. The devices are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and there is a fully-refundable $100 daily deposit for use.

A little about Lexington, North Carolina.

800px-Lexington_NC_WelcomeLexington is located in the heart of Piedmont
country in Davidson County, North Carolina.
Lexington was first settled in 1775 and it was
named after Lexington, Mass., the location of
first battle of the American Revolutionary War.
Lexington is nicknamed the Barbeque Capital of the World.

Uptown Lexington hosts an annual Barbecue festival along Main Street.
Since 2003, fiberglass pigs are elaborately and creatively painted by artists then paraded and displayed as part of the “Pigs in the City” project.
This pig has a home in front of the Candy Factory.
The first barbeque restaurant in Lexington
no longer exists.
The space was incorporated into the City Hall.

Lexington has a number of monuments honoring our fallen heroes.
Below is a picture of the VietNam War monument located in the
Town Square.

Did you know that Elvis Presley was paid $200 for performing at the YMCA in Lexington on March 21, 1956?

Emily's Project

Back in August we showed you Emily's High School project in progress.
Here is Emily working on her project.

Below are slides of the completed work.

Emily is a senior at Central High School in Davidson County, North Carolina. She has been a pottery student for two years. The vase she is painting is her Senior Project.
The vase is a flat piece that is covered with lady bugs, butterflies and dragonflies. It stands 20 inches tall and is 8 inches wide with leaves and a friendly little worm on the base.

Blind Potter Update

Blind Potter Friends,

We haven't posted any new work for the Blind Potter for a few weeks now and we wanted to update all of you.

Kerry went to Texas to visit her friends and family and to participate in the Best of Texas Festival. On the first weekend, all of the North Texas area experienced rainy weather. This affected the turnout at Six Flags over Texas. Many folks did come by and said "hello" braving the conditions.

On her last weekend, at the Best of Texas, Kerry experienced a relapse with her PXE. She had felt discomfort with her right eye and it turned out to be a rupture. Kerry underwent surgery on her eye this Monday (9/28) and she is recovering well.

Kerry will be back behind the wheel soon!! The Potter's wheel that is!

BTW- Kerry heard yesterday that she is definitely scheduled to be at the Alabama State ACB Convention in November.
