Audio description: Accessing meaning-making in popular scientific texts

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

The paper focuses on the production and reception processes in audio description of a Swedish multimodal popular scientific journal Forskning och Framsteg (Research and Progress). The contents of the journal are made accessible for blind and visually impaired audiences by producing an audio version. When interpreting the printed version and transforming it into an audio version, the processes of reception and production coincide. The meaning-making processes are uncovered with the help of a think aloud protocol.
