VocalEye Describers view a performance at least 3 times, making notes on the design elements (set, costumes, props), characters and physical action. These notes are then transformed into two scripts:
- Introductory Notes are read before the show to provide the listener with an overview of the context, style and design of the production and an introduction to the main characters and locations
- Action Notes are a combination of prompts, reminders and finely-tuned phrases that concisely and vividly describe important physical action. All action description must be worded and timed to fit in between lines of dialogue.
Although the Describers have their notes and prompts to refer to, they must also watch the action closely and be prepared for any changes or surprises during the live performance.
