We aim to encourage a diversity of representation in the Disability Visibility Project’s stories and participants. However, we are mindful of our limitations:
- The project cannot reach all towns and cities (except for using the StoryCorps app).
- The project is centered on audio recordings.
- The project cannot provide or pay for ASL interpreters for Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing and Deaf-Blind participants.
- Each participant pair will receive a CD with an mp3 file of their story after their interview. For information on how to convert an audio file to text, go to our recent blog post: http://disabilityvisibilityproject.com/2014/07/07/faq-convert-audio-into-text/
This project receives zero funding and while we would like to pay for interpreters for participants who need them, the best we can do is search for a volunteer interpreter. Please note we cannot guarantee finding and arranging a volunteer ASL interpreter for a Deaf participant. We are in the early stage of developing a network of volunteers in San Francisco, Chicago and Atlanta.
NOTE: The Disability Visibility Project is merely a community partnership with StoryCorps. We do not represent or speak for StoryCorps in any way.
Please consider contacting StoryCorps directly with questions about accessibility. Let them know what you think! http://storycorps.org/contact/
