Description:

 Join Karanveer (AKA handsomejatt) as he returns to share how he has been breaking barriers in movie editing for persons with disabilities. Even though he has used eye-gaze as his main access for a Tobii Dynavox communication device, he needed to learn an additional access tool for movie editing since eye gaze is not yet available for apple products. He uses the Glassouse head mouse for movie editing on a Macintosh computer with Final Cut X and Adobe Premiere software. He is also using the Microsoft Surface for film editing with the attached Tobii eye gaze system. Come and learn how he has taken his passion for movie editing and turned it into a money-making career!

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will gain awareness in alternative access options for video editing for persons with disabilities. 

Participants will learn ways to support students in developing vocational skills to turn their passions into careers.
