Hello All!

Want a little audio description competition? The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute is hosting the DescribeAthon17<http://www.ski.org/project/describeathon17> on Thursday, January 26, 2017!

>From the site:

On Thursday, January 26, 2017, amateur and professional describers all over the world will participate in this day of description. Volunteer describers will describe as many YouTube videos of as many kinds as we can in a single day.

Join us from your own home or workplace, or by gathering with other volunteers at one of the in-person DescribeAthon meetups.

In-person locations currently include:

* In San Francisco at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute
* In Manhattan at the New York Public Library, Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library

Please contact us<mailto:youdescribe at ski.org> if you would like to organize a DescribeAthon17 meetup in your city!

Volunteers will use YouDescribe<http://youdescribe.org/> - Smithg-Kettlewell's free, web-based tool for recording and playing audio description for any YouTube video.
Who's up for a challenge? I think I'm aiming for MOST IMPRESSIVE DESCRIBER.
