World-First Accessible Audio

Monash University and Tennis Australia Serve Up World-First Accessible Audio Stream for Fans with Blindness or Low Vision

Tennis Australia, Monash University and AKQA have launched Action Audio, an online audio stream designed to make the Australian Open broadcasts accessible for almost 600,000 Australians and 285 million people living with blindness or a vision impairment.

Action Audio allows people with blindness or vision impairment to stay connected to the tennis experience throughout the entire match, and follow it in real-time.

Action Audio uses Tennis Australia’s real-time ball position data to make the ball ‘audible’ to blind audiences.
