Audio describers Nicola Owen and Joel Snyder.

Audio describers are employed to describe almost anything you can imagine for blind and visually impaired people – from parades to live opera, art exhibitions, weddings and funerals. American audio describer Joel Snyder was in New Zealand recently and One in Five caught up with him and one of New Zealand’s audio describers, Nicola Owen, to hear about their craft.
