Boston-IA (Boston-IA.org <http://www.boston-ia.org>) invites IxDA Boston to
attend a presentation at WGBH. Larry
Goldberg<http://boston-ia.org/meetings.html#speaker>,
Director of the Media Access Group at WGBH
(Access.wgbh.org<http://access.wgbh.org>),
will discuss the ground-breaking work that WGBH continues to do to make
multimedia accessible for people with disabilities. The meeting will take
place at the new WGBH facilities in Brighton.

As media changes from analog to digital, from fixed to mobile, from
broadcast to the Internet, captioning and video description must change as
well. New and emerging applications for captioning and video description are
being developed and proliferated today by the Media Access Group at WGBH and
its business partners.

Larry Goldberg will discuss the promise and problems of captioning and
description for personal data assistants (PDAs), cell phones, digital TV,
digital cinema, DVDs, in-flight systems, and Internet-based educational and
entertainment services.

For security purposes, pre-registration is required. Please pre-register by
Wednesday, January 30, 2008 to save your space.
