Live Audio Streaming of Tennis for Blind

Science Innovations

Monash University in association with Tennis Australia is launching the world’s first accessible audio stream for tennis fans with blindness or low vision. Named Action Audio, the technology enables the blind to stay connected to the tennis experience throughout the entire match, and follow it in real time. It uses Tennis Australia’s real-ball position data to make the ball ‘audible’ to blind audiences. By applying sound design principles to the ball data, blind and low vision audiences can follow the speed and trajectory of the ball, its proximity to the line, and a player’s shot type in 3D audio. The new technology will make Australian Open broadcasts accessible for almost 600,000 Austrralians and 285 million people living with blindness or vision impairment.
