With the help of the ProGUIDE project we have established an adapted a reliable and flexible platform for visually impaired sound engineers, musicians and producers. With the help of the SADiE 5 software
, the scalable hardware, the Papenmeier Braille technology and the screen reader adaptations, the visually impaired users can be independent in their daily work. The SADiE is divided into three different categories; the BB2
for the laptop, the LRX2
for on-location recording and project studios, H64
for the recording studio. The technical adaptation proposed by the ProGUIDE group refers to all these different types of audio work: recording, processing, mastering and broadcasting.
Sound Engineers rely on a flexible platform and a range of useful plug-ins, musicians build their project studio around the powerful engine of the SADiE system, and producers offer their customers the materials in various formats and resolutions with the help of the applications.
The Svefi Academy currently offers training in a real environment for visually impaired users.
We in the project group think that this is a winning concept for the visually impaired users who want to enter the labour market.
The SADiE system with the Papenmeier Braille display and the adapted Jaws screen reader allows blind people to take job opportunities that were inaccessible before. This Solution provides a chance to broaden the labour market and job opportunities. The quality of the SADiE system is close to perfection and the adaptation makes it possible for the target group to use it.
