[WCSA] Daily Highlights April 08, 2021 – Action Audio: A hope for Blind or low vision sports fans all over the world

08-04-2021

(Wcsa.world) For the breathtaking and eye-catching action in the sports games; people who are blind or have low vision have compromised viewing experience due to a lack of interactiveness. The radio commentary is just not in tune with the live-action, and so their experience is mostly compromised.

In partnership with Monash University, Tennis Australia has developed a new technology called Action Audio which will bring back the thrill of live sports to the life of blind or low visioned people.

 

 

Action Audio technology works by using the data from a ball monitoring computer vision system that analyses key moments from the game and plays them with a 3D Sound design system which brings the game to life.

 

 

Tennis Australia and Monash University have successfully been able to integrate new technology in the sports broadcast. This will very well promote the ‘Live sports for all’ motive. Broadcasters will soon employ this technology in the broadcast of other sports as well.
