Using Audio Description to Improve FLL Students' Oral Competence in MALL: Methodological Preliminaries
Ibáñez Moreno, Ana; Vermeulen, Anna; Jordano, Maria
During the last decades of the 20th century, audiovisual products began to be audio described in order to make them accessible to blind and visually impaired people (Benecke, 2004). This means that visual information is orally described in the gaps between dialogues. In order to meet the wishes of the so-called On Demand (OD) generation that wants "anything, anytime, anyplace", we implemented Audio Description (AD) as a tool to promote oral production skills by means of mobile devices (android smart phones) and designed an app named VIdeos for SPeaking (VISP). In this paper we describe the methodological steps followed until the achievement of this first version of VISP, and we present the first prototype, which will be applied to distance education students and in other ubiquitous learning environments.
