TAVIP Masterclass: Accessible Podcast Production by Dave Williams – Wednesday 15 May at 7:30pm BST

Podcasting can be a tremendous tool for individuals and organisations to build communities, connect with audiences, share expertise, or simply have a bit of audio fun. But how do you get started with making your own podcast? And what are some of the particular challenges we face as blind or partially sighted podcast producers?

You are invited to join me on 15 May, at 7:30PM UK time, for a masterclass on accessible podcast production. We will be exploring tried and tested processes, accessible tools and techniques we blind people use to plan, prepare, produce and promote our own podcasts.
I have been producing and publishing audio online for 25 years. For the last 2 years I have hosted the UK’s leading technology podcast and radio show for blind and partially sighted people, RNIB Tech Talk.

I am a former director of ACB Radio, a service of the American Council of the Blind. I developed BrailleCast, the official podcast of the Braillists Foundation. I have a background in marketing, have worked as a voice over artist, and ran my own accessible technology training business before joining RNIB in 2019. I am also honoured to sit on the steering committee for Sound Without Sight, an RNIB backed community hub for blind and partially sighted musicians and audio producers.

In March 2024 I had the privilege of recording an interview with iconic musician Stevie Wonder. You can find that recording and others from the CSUN assistive technology conference on this page:

In this session I will take you through the steps I use to plan, prepare, record, edit, publish and promote my various podcasts. I will also be glad to facilitate discussion, take your questions, and help you develop your own podcast ideas. Finally, I will signpost to further resources including hardware and software tools and services that I trust to get my podcasts out there.

I hope you can join me.
