The research group Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies (TrICS) of the University of Antwerp organises a one-day symposium on 29 April 2016 on the accessibility of live events. Accessibility is rapidly becoming standard and an integral part of many live events today. Unlimited! would like to pay tribute to this development and draw a map of the current state of play, focusing on audio description, including audio-surtitling and audio-subtitling, surtitling for the hearing impaired, and sign language. For the full programme please see Unlimited!
