First, you need to find out if there is a local organization which trains and uses audio describers. Consult our AD Services web page. If they offer training, you will probably have to "pass" an audition. They will want to know what your reading voice sounds like. Do you have a strong accent? Do you enunciate well? Do you stumble or stutter? How good is your command of English (or your local language) and your vocabulary? Remember: an audio describer should never be distracting from the performance being described, so the organization will be looking for people with pleasant voices and good command of the language.

PYRRHIC : In classical Greek or Latin poetry, this foot consists of two unaccented syllables--the opposite of a spondee . At best, a pyrrhic foot is an unusual aberration in English verse, and most prosodists (including me!) do not accept it as a foot at all because it contains no accented syllable. Normally, the context or prevailing iambs, trochees, or spondees in surrounding lines overwhelms any potential pyrrhic foot, and a speaker reading the foot aloud will tend artificially to stress either the first or last syllable. See meter for more information.
