Audio-Reader announcer Art Hadley honored

Thu, 07/10/2014

LAWRENCE — Art Hadley, longtime producer, engineer and announcer for the University of Kansas Audio-Reader Network, was recently recognized for his outstanding contributions to the International Association of Audio Information Services (IAAIS) at an awards ceremony during the IAAIS conference last month in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

IAAIS represents and sets the standards of good practice for audio information services worldwide. Any reading service that delivers its programs using audio technology is eligible for membership. Audio-Reader, a reading and information service associated with KU, has been a part of IAAIS for more than 30 years.

Hadley, who has worked as a producer and announcer at Audio-Reader since 1977, has served as an IAAIS board member for three years. In addition to his work at Audio-Reader, he maintains the IAAIS website and serves as an important source of information for audio information services across the globe. In 2009, Hadley created a special FTP-based section of the IAAIS website that allows reading services across the country to share programming.

Hadley’s work to create and maintain the IAAIS program share makes him a perfect fit for the Bob Brummond Award. Robert Brummond was the founder of the Asheville, North Carolina, reading service now known as Mountain Area Radio Reading Service. He was an early champion of the internet and its potential to make the printed word accessible to those who cannot read for themselves.

The KU Audio-Reader Network exists to provide free reading and information services for blind, visually impaired and print-disabled individuals. Services are available using a variety of technologies to anyone who is unable to read traditional printed material. To learn more about Audio-Reader, visit reader.ku.edu. Information about the International Association of Audio Information Services is available at iaais.org.

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
