Re: Ideas needed!

I like it too.  but here's the thing.  I'm bringing my 15-inch digital picture frame to do this job and I'm pretty sure videos don't work on this one, although I could test and find out.

Although, what I'd realllllly like to do is rent a 42" inch plasma screen so we can do slideshows and demos properly in the booth.   I had one for the openSUSE SCALE booth and it totally rocked.  I'm trying to find out a way to get my hands on one for CSUN since I really don't think this 15" digital frame, nor the small monitor that comes with the GNOME Booth kit are adequate for an accessibility conference. 

If we have a plasma tv, then I would gladly hook up my laptop to it and display better content, including videos.

I like the video idea.

For subtitles, I highly recommend It makes it easy for a lot of people to collaborate in transcribing and translating.

For slides combined with video I've heard good things about popcorn and butter,, but I haven't tried it myself.

Dear Bryen,
what about creating a videopresentation? Some time ago I created
something similar for my visually impaired sister and it was used on
some conference to present her as she could not attend physically.

I could imagine some videos showing work with different a11y apps (I
had some for Orca using speech and magnifier). These pieces of movies
(I used HD camcorder, but current digital cameras can also produce
nice movies) could be combined with slides or tittles.

I used Inkscape to create the slides, some video basic editor to
combine them with video, transition effects, speech comments, music
(took some free from and Aegisub for subtitles - my video
was in Czech but I also needed English subtitles. Result was an SD AVI
and 720p HD MP4 with SRT subtitles. According to the feedback, the
presentation was successful.

Such video could be played looped at your booth.
