Joel Snyder
Mr. Queen, “Big Mike” Dalton
Dr. Joel Snyder is known internationally as one of the world’s first “audio describers” and voice talent, a pioneer in the use of language and voice to convey visual images for the benefit, primarily, of people who are blind or have a vision impairment. His work has been a part of nationally televised shows including Sesame Street and a wide range of movies, DVDs, museums and the performing arts. Since 1981, he has introduced audio description techniques in over 40 states and 53 countries and has made hundreds of live events, media projects and museums accessible.
