Multimodal Translation with the Blind
Project reference code
MUTABLE studies the collaborative-interactive translation process by analyzing team audio description in which sighted and blind describers work on an audio description face-to-face. In the project, the particular topics of interest are the interface between cognition and interaction, the use of multimodal resources while translating, and the organisation of work, and the expertise of perceptually asymmetrical teams. The main research data are video recordings of authentic audio description processes in Austria, Finland and Germany.
