first_imgMost people are aware of the need for captions to make videos more accessible. But few are familiar with the requirement for audio description for videos, which accommodates people who are blind or have low-vision. Audio description narrates what visually is happening in the video, information that’s not available to someone who can’t see. Think of a radio sports announcer at a baseball game, describing the ground ball hit to the third baseman who throws the ball to the second baseman for the beginning of a double play. That’s similar to audio description.

The Conference Hall of the Copacabana Hotel there witnessed 16 rounds of play among some of the world’s top women players. Jayshree, who was accompanied by elder sister Vasanti in the capacity of manager, is the middle of the three Khadilkar sisters who have kept the Indian women’s national chess title among them ever since its inception six years ago. India Today interviewed the 17-year-old girl at her Girgaum home in one of Bombay’s most crowded localities. Excerpts:Q. Would you describe the course of tournament? And your own progress?A. Loseliani of the USSR – at the age of 18, she is already a grandmaster. She won the tournament with 14-and-a-half points out of a possible 16. She won every round until the second-last, when she agreed to a quick draw against Veroci Petronik of Hungary. I was beaten by her in just 35 moves.I started very badly, losing my first rounds. In the sixth I beat Borisova of Sweden who beat Alexandria of the USSR, the girl who ultimately captured the third place. After that, I played fairly well; got 6.5 points.Q. What was your sister Vasanti’s role during the tournament?A. She was my philosopher and guide. The Government took care of both our air-fares, while her boarding and lodging in Rio was borne by her. We would discuss the games played during the day; and she took extensive notes, which will be of great help to us in future. She also helped me plan my strategy for adjourned games.Q. Who were the top five, and how did you perform against them?A. Loseliani (14.5 points), Petronik of Hungary (13), Alexandria (12), Fischdick of Germany (11.5) and Palironaide of Romania (11) were the top five. I lost to all the five of them.Q. Which was your most significant victory? Did you win anything for your efforts?A. My quickest victory was against Cardozo of Brazil in 25 moves; but my most significant win was against grandmaster Kozlovskaya of the USSR in my last round. I was awarded 150 Swiss francs for my 11th position.Q. What happens as a result of this tournament? Where do you go from here?A. The top three from this tournament now play the top three from the zonal contest; this new tournament is called the Candidates’ tournament. The top two will then challenge the world’s top two players, Maya Chiburdanidze and Nona Gaprindashvili, both of the USSR, who did not have to play the inter-zonal stage. My rating is expected to increase from the earlier 2,040 to 2,100. The highest rating possible is 2,500 on the scale. World champion Maya’s rating is 2,380. So that provides you with basis for comparison.advertisementlast_img read more
