Raising awareness on accessibility issues

5/14/2014        Other articles by: Stavroula

How about giving learners a chance to practice audiovisual listening and writing skills while raising awareness on accessibility issues?

In the ClipFlair activity Baby Shower, B2 students are asked to simulate the work of a subtitler for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and add captions to a clip from the popular series Friends.
To do that, first they need to listen carefully to the dialogues and transcribe them. Then they have to create subtitles by following certain subtitling standards.

Time and space restrictions often do not allow for a word-for-word transcript, and condensation is necessary: learners have to find shorter synonyms or paraphrase the script to fit it in the subtitles.
