Media Accessibility Intern: Harpers Ferry Center

Application Due: February 19, 2021


HFC’s Media Accessibility intern will work on specific projects, products and resources that promote accessibility and provide guidance to staff and the field. A primary focus includes assistance, coordination and outreach to park partners, stakeholders and users for the special project, UniDescription, to audio describe print materials. This project ensures a fundamental level of access to each park’s history and resources for visitors who are blind or have low vision. In addition to coordination activities, the intern will, through asynchronous training, learn how to write audio description and produce audio described media, with a primary focus on brochures. Other areas of focus include researching accessibility requirements, compiling instructive, media accessibility examples, drafting notated guides, and assisting in training opportunities and promotion of materials that contribute to best practices and guidelines for media accessibility. Cultivation of stakeholder relationships in and outside of HFC and the NPS and collaboration on work teams is also an integral part of the work process. In addition to benefitting persons with disabilities (and their families and friends) who make up part of the NPS’s visiting public, NPS staff in the field, at regional levels and within HFC will benefit from the products created.
