The UniDescription Project

How would you describe an Ansel Adams photograph of a scene within Yellowstone National Park to a person who cannot see, or has low vision, or has difficulty interpreting print materials, or simply prefers information in audible forms? Those varied audiences (including people who are blind, with low-vision, print dyslexic, and audio-oriented) deserve full access to public discourse, and The UniDescription Project has been created to serve them. That effort includes field research at U.S. National Park Service sites around the country as well as the development and application of a webtool, at, and related mobile apps.
