Illustrated Children's Stories with Audio Description, ASL and Audio Narration for ALL children
Revolutionizing Children's Illustrated Books
Imagination Storybooks, previously known as Imagination Videobooks, is becoming “Imagination Storybooks by DCMP ,” heralding a new era of inclusivity in children’s literature.
This groundbreaking initiative involves merging assets into the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP), a nonprofit funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the National Association of the Deaf.
CEO Richard Rieman said “Our expanded mission aims to bridge the accessibility gap for blind, deaf, and learning-challenged children. We’re introducing rich audio descriptions, captions, sign language, and downloadable braille files to make illustrated books universally accessible.”
Highlighting the importance of authentic representation, Rieman added, “Our approach to audio description is unique because it’s created by those who rely on it.
Tristan Snyder, our Executive Producer, is not only a blind audio description quality expert but also an award-winning narrator and audio engineer. We prioritize hiring blind and low-vision narrators and quality-control experts, ensuring that our content resonates with our audience.”
Imagination Videobooks, Inc. will transfer all its assets to the DCMP December 1st.
The richly described and sign-language-inclusive video library, boasting over 150 titles, is available on the Imagination Storybooks by DCMP Channel
