Working without images opens the world of reality-based storytelling to the visually impaired and our LABS are the living proof that the visually impaired have mastered the art of listening and have a lot to teach; in the collaboration between the sighted and non-sighted or partially sighted lies the secret recipe of a great audio story.

DS-LAB-PER-WEBDOCUSOUND LAB is a non-professional short training program/workshop where we teach young and adults how to document life with a recorder, just like you do with a compact camera. In a laid back and relaxed environment participants will learn the nuts and bolts of audio recording for non professional use: how to keep an audiodiary, how to send audiopostcard, audiomemories etc…how to record and share the sounds of every day life. No previous experience is required, online follow up and hand-outs are provided.

DOCUSOUND LAB PRO is also a professional training program where participants learn how to develop, fund, produce and distribute factual audio content professionally. Own equipment is not required (but warmly advised), online follow up and hand-outs are provided. In 2012 DOCUSOUND LAB PRO was held in Bologna, Rome and Padua, Italy.
