Pranav Lal is a landscape photographer and writer based in New Delhi who also works as a cyber security professional. Blind since birth, Lal's photography is guided in part by a software called vOICe or VEE-"OH I SEE", developed in 1992 by engineer Peter Meijer. The software essentially converts images into sound which Lal hears through headphones and helps to determine what he is looking at.

Rebecca Singh Is an audio describer and performer based in Toronto. Rebecca has described theatre, performance art and large-scale art installations with both live and recorded AD.
