German audio-descriptive commentary to be available for France vs Germany semi-final

Partially sighted and blind German fans will once again be able to tune in to a live audio-descriptive commentary for Germany’s UEFA EURO 2016 semi-final against France.

 

CAFE reported last week that Nadine Merten, an audio-descriptive commentator at Eintracht Frankfurt, was providing a dedicated service to a group of German partially sighted and blind fans during the R16 and quarter-final.

 

For the quarter-final match with Italy, German speaking disabled fans could also tune into the service via conference call.

 

To support this service, and as part of the UEFA EURO 2016 Respect Access for All project, CAFE was pleased to make a donation of €500 to Handicap Fanclub Fußball Nationalmannschaft e.V to help cover their costs.

 

The service was very well-received at the Italy match, and will once again be available at Germany’s Semi Final with hosts France which takes place on Thursday evening in Marseille.

 

German speaking disabled fans wishing to tune into the audio-descriptive commentary service can do so using the below credentials:

-          Conference room Phone +493077019073999

-          PIN 1856

 

The conference call will begin at 20:50 local time, and listeners are being asked to mute their phones to minimise noise and interference.

 

If you have any problems tuning into the service on matchday, you can contact the providers directly via WhatsApp on +491722971305.

CAFE is delivering the UEFA EURO 2016 Respect Access for All project around the Finals, and audio-descriptive commentary has been available at all matches in the local language of French. Anyone wishing to tune into the French service at the stadium can do so using their personal radios, and tuning into 107.9FM.
