In the first of a 2-part episode, Brian and Carl are excited to interview Dr. Maria Victoria Diaz of the Dicapta Foundation. Dicapta has been producing audio description in Spanish for the last 15 years mainly with funds from the US Department of Education Office of Special Education (OSEP). They have been pushing and advocating for Spanish audio description to be incorporated as part of the implementation of the CVVA. Hear about the many issues they face regarding passing through the Spanish AD in the video stream, even though they have fantastic broadcast and cable partners such as Canal 22 International, Senilities, PBS, POV, New Day Films, and NickLA among others. Despite these issues, they have delivered more than 3,000 hours of audio description in Spanish. Additional information regarding Dicapta’s work with OSEP can be found following this link:

In our next episode with Dr. Diaz, we will discuss the need for an audio description clearinghouse! This has been on Brian’s and Carl’s wish list for a long-time, so come back!
