Technology For Talking

Technology For Talking is a short animated film by director Jemima Hughes about Alternative or Augmentative Communication (AAC) – technology that gives disabled people a voice. The film was commissioned by the BBC for their BBC Ideas platform’s ‘Rethinking Disability’ strand, and is available to watch here.

The score uses ‘softsynth’ sounds to reflect both the technological subject matter and the 70s/80s retro visual aesthetic of the film, and accompanies Jemima’s own narration using AAC.
