A team of volunteers will make their debuts as audio commentators at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, enabling blind and partially-sighted fans the chance to enjoy the tournament.
Volunteer Nikhil Bhana appeared as a guest on TV1’s Breakfast show to explain the training given to the fledgeling commentators, and to provide an example of how their descriptions will sound.
“Our job as audio descriptor commentators is to allow people who have sight impairments, or are partially blind or fully blind to be able to see the game through their ears,” he said.
