Polly is a Service Designer at Vision Australia, where, amongst other projects, she led the redesign of services for children, young people and their families. She is also a freelance professional practitioner and researcher of Audio Description (the scripting and voicing of descriptions inserted into visual presentations with the purpose of ensuring that it makes sense from an auditory perspective in order to render it accessible for people who are blind or have low vision). As well as providing AD for clients internationally, she was involved in Vision Australia’s partnership with the Melbourne Fashion Festival to bring audio description to the runway. Previously, she worked for 8 years supporting a member of the British Parliament, the former President of the International Council for the Education of the Visually Impaired (ICEVI) and Vice-President of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), Lord Colin Low, who is himself blind.
