Media for All

About the Conference

The Western Sydney University in Sydney, Australia, is proud to announce the 6th International Media for All Conference – Audiovisual Translation and Media Accessibility: Global Challenges. For the first time ever it will be held outside Europe and aims to attract academics, researchers, language practitioners, translators, interpreters, broadcasters, government agencies, support groups and the audiovisual translation (AVT) and media accessibility industry from Australia and Asia Pacific and other parts of the world. AVT and media accessibility are becoming increasingly interdisciplinary and intercultural, and include subtitling, live subtitling, dubbing, voice over, closed captioning/subtitling for the hard-of-hearing (SDH) and audio description for the blind and partially sighted. Not only do these many AVT modes make audiovisual content accessible to global audiences, they are also being put to efficient use in a growing number of other contexts such as intercultural communication, language learning, university teaching, corporate communications and social media. The conference will provide an outstanding opportunity for participants to compare practices and exchange views on media access and audiovisual translation practice, research and training.
