Five of this year's eight Best Picture Academy Award nominees were audio described here in Boston. In the early days, Perkins Library Director, Kim Charlson was consulted on the development of audio description at WGBH's Media Access Group. Naturally, the press comes to her as an authority on the subject. A strong advocate for accessibility of all kinds, Kim is also the president of the American Council of the Blind. She appeared in the Greater Boston TV news magazine piece on audio described Oscar nominees and was quoted in the page-one Boston Globe story on the same topic.
