Tim’s Interesting South 1 Presentation

This fun and lively 10 minute presentation by Tim on Voice and his ‘Vocology System’ of expressive speaking and insightful listening was recorded in 2007 at the highly acclaimed Interesting South 1 Conference.

This was Tim’s first-time public presentation about Voice and also Tim’s first public on-stage Vocological Voice Reading (Thanks Sarah).

Note that in 2009 Tim re-branded his ‘Vocology System’ to ‘Vocal Consciousness‘ to avoid confusion with other uses of the word ‘Vocology’.

Hear or Download Tim Noonan’s Review of Accessible Dr Who DVD Boxed Set

This audio review of Dr Who by Tim Noonan gives some interesting insights into creating accessible multimedia materials, developing self-voicing products as well as demonstrating some voice user interface design principles. The review was produced for Media Access Australia and was the first commercial DVD release containing speaking navigation menus and audio description for people who are blind.

Running Time: 16m 51s

Alternatively, here is a written review of the accessible DVD set.

You can also read Tim Noonan’s written review of the Audio Description features on “Thank God You’re Here: Series Two” DVD set.

In this review, Tim highlights the profound irony that though several DVDs are now being produced with accessible features like audio description, at the same time they are inaccessible to the extent that audio description can’t independently be activated. This is why the self voicing menus approach used on the Dr. Who boxed set is so important and welcomed.
