If you hadn’t already found out, we’ve been piloting the Actiview app nationwide with Cars 3! There are still a few weeks left while Cars 3 is in theaters to take advantage of audio description, amplified audio or both at ANY movie theater that is playing Cars 3.
*Quick tip, download the audio description (AD) or amplified audio before leaving for the theater over Wi-Fi saving cellular data and time
Now, on a more personal note, I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself now that we’re back to blogging! My name is Aerial Gilbert and I’m the newest member of the Actiview Team. I’m looking forward to being your portal to the Actiview world as news and more movies become available in the near future. I’ll be keeping up with our Twitter, Facebook, and blog here and can’t wait to be sharing all of this with you! I am blind, and recently retired from working @ Guide Dogs For the Blind for 23 years. I have had a special interest in Actiview since it’s inception and I am excited to be part of the team.
I’m obviously a huge fan of the app, having been part of a lot of the initial testing and development and finally having seen Cars 3 on my own at my local theater. As we release more and more content for you all to try out (Closed Captions, anyone? A ton more movies too!), I’ll be keeping you posted, but I also want to start a conversation around entertainment and access with you all. Actiview wouldn’t exist if not for the ideas and input of its users and I’d like to open up all of our social channels as a place for us to discuss all types of accessible content, what movies you’re excited about, and all the ideas and feedback you have on our app!
This is the just the beginning and there’s so much more to come.
Looking forward to working with all of you,
Aerial and the Actiview Team
