Rebecca Singh

I am an entrepreneur and in-demand professional accessibility service provider. My speciality is Audio Description (AD), also known as Described Video (DV). I write and produce scripts which describe the essential visual elements of a film or video, for the benefit of blind and partially sighted audiences. During post production the scripts are audio recorded and made available as a “described video” track which plays in-between dialogue. I am one of a handful of professionally trained Audio Describers in Canada. I work with community consultants and employ international standards and guidelines towards excellence in my field. I am versed in US and UK standards, guidelines and methods, and am proudly helping to define the “Canadian accent” in Audio Description.

In the past few months I have Created Audio Description for "Servant" an upcoming M. Night Shyamalan series and "Ordinary Love" a TIFF premiered feature film. Recent projects include content from CBC, ACTRA and several universities.

In March 2019 I was honoured to be the first Canadian to speak at the Advanced Research Seminar on Audio Description in Barcelona. I am now preparing a chapter on Canadian audio description for a handbook published by Routeledge.

I have been the development coordinator for Black Women Film! Canada for the past 2 years. I am active on the women's committee of ACTRA and
occasionally work as an actor (Handmaid's Tale), and have experience as a Cultural Professional (Cultural Director, Consulate General of Israel to Toronto and Western Canada).
