Sound Without Sight and ADC23
We are delighted to share that Sound Without Sight has been designated as a Community Sponsor of the Audio Developer Conference 2023. ADC is an annual event celebrating all audio development technologies, from music applications and game audio to audio processing and embedded systems. ADC’s mission is to help attendees acquire and develop new skills, and build a network that will support their career development. It is also aimed at showcasing academic research and facilitating collaborations between research and industry.
Accessibility at ADC
ADC is committed to accessibility, and at Sound Without Sight we are very excited to learn how ADC23 will continue to drive change and raise the profile of inclusive design within the audio industry. ADC22 featured a dedicated Accessibility Zone, which showcased all the recent developments to mainstream audio products that have been designed with a wider user-base in mind. We hope to see a continuation of this initiative at this year’s conference.
Additionally, ADC offers Diversity Scholarships for prospective attendees. The scholarships aim to:
- increase diversity within the audio development community,
- create career opportunities, and
- provide access for those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
ADC will consider any candidate from an under-represented background with regards to the usual ADC conference attendees. This includes blind or partially sighted people. Recipients of an ADC scholarship will receive a complimentary Audio Developer Conference in-person ticket for the 2-day London event.
Submit an idea for a talk
We are also very keen to share that the Audio Developer Conference 2023 talk submission portal is now open. The organisers invite anyone from the audio developer community – from students to industry experts – to contribute to the Audio Developer Conference by submitting a talk proposal. Do you have an idea for how the audio industry or its products could become more inclusive?
However, you’ll need to be quick, as the deadline for submissions is this Thursday, 29th June.
Have an idea but don’t want to present it yourself? Contact us!
