Writing audio description texts


mosaic audiodescription brings together all the tools needed to write audio description texts in a single product. Based on a video, write the audio description in the language of your choice using rythmo band technology. The audio waveform display allows you to view the parts without speech and so place the text correctly. Once your writing work is done, send the project to the studio for the voice recording.
