Hi there and welcome to Vox Talk, your weekly review from the world of voice over. I’m your host, Stephanie Ciccarelli from Voices.

We’ll also be chatting about a high profile job Herb just voiced on the Oscars Red Carpet. Welcome to the show, Herb!

You’re fresh off the red carpet! For those who tuned into the Oscars on Sunday night, Herb was dressed to the nines with his audio description colleagues on Hollywood’s biggest night. So tell me Herb, what was it like to provide audio description leading up to the awards ceremony?

Can you tell us more about audio description?
