With LiveVoice you can bring visual moments alive. For everyone. From everywhere.
Audio description at local events of all types and sizes - from tournaments at the school sports club to the opera house.
The audio describers can work on site but also from anywhere else in the world.
The World Blind Union (WBU) estimates that 253 million people worldwide are blind or visually impaired. That is about 3.2% of the world's population. People with visual impairments have become so accustomed to being excluded from cultural life that they don't even expect audio description to be offered at events. But that needs to change. Together, we can make a difference.
People using the service have everything they need in their pocket. The organizational effort associated with distributing and collecting analog devices is completely eliminated. In addition, expensive equipment is no longer necessary, because all the audio describers need is a laptop or smartphone. That means minimal cost, easy scalability for any size event, and no sanitation hassles. You can manage everything yourself, so you're completely flexible.
LiveVoice is intuitive and easy to use, also for people with visual impairments. The app runs in the background on the phone, so listeners can lock the screen or use other apps at the same time. Minimal battery and data consumption (120x less than e.g. YouTube). Fast automatic reconnection in case of lost connection.
LiveVoice enables audio describers to work from anywhere in the world at any time. This avoids travel costs and reduces the carbon footprint. The video feature allows audio describers to capture exactly what is happening on stage or on the field. Through the hand-over function, they can take turns.
All you need is mobile internet or WIFI.
