Winter Springs, December 9, 2021. Dicapta announced today that Nefertiti Matos Olivares has been appointed as the new Partnership Development Coordinator of the company and will assume responsibilities on December 13, 2021. She is a subject matter expert on access technology and cultural accessibility.

Mrs. Matos has worked as an Access Technology Educator for the New York Public Library’s Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library during the last seven years, providing one-on-one technology coaching, and facilitating group workshops on tech topics for the blind and low vision community in both English and Spanish.

“Having Nefertiti’s expertise and knowledge in our team will support Dicapta’s mission on using the power of technology to serve our community,” said Olga Collazos, Dicapta’s Emerging Technology coordinator.  “We welcome her to our team.”

Her expertise in the audio description field includes scripting, narration, and quality control. Her most recent work includes the narration of audio description for the first Audio Description Awards Gala this past November 18, 2021, when a unique audio description design allowed the audience to experience an active dialogue between the audio description narrator, Nefertiti, and the host of the Gala, Mr. Thomas Reid. 

“Nefertiti joined the team to support our efforts in putting together a universal clearinghouse of accessibility assets to make them widely available for ALL,” said Dr. Maria-Victoria Diaz, CEO of Dicapta. “Her passion for audio description, as well as her cultural background as Latino growing in the US, is going to be key to continue developing effective partnerships to reach our ultimate goal of bringing all parties together to bring universal access to media. We are honored to have her on board”

"As a longtime member of Dicapta's consumer advisory group, I know firsthand the importance of establishing and cultivating community partnerships. I am thrilled that we will have Nefertiti's talent and technical expertise. She will be a wonderful addition to Dicapta's dedicated and dynamic team!" said Judy Matthews.

Nefertiti Matos Olivares received her degree in Community and Human Services from the State University of New York Empire State College in 2017.  She is currently a consultant for the MOMA- Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Descriptive Video Works in Canada, the San Francisco State University, and The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens in New York, in a variety of aspects of accessibility- from audio description best practices to inclusion and representation of people with disabilities with diverse cultural backgrounds.
