What is Audio Description?
Audio description, also known as descriptive audio or video description, narrates the relevant visual information contained in a video and is an accommodation for blind and low-vision viewers.
Failing to provide audio description inhibits blind and low vision individuals from gaining a complete understanding of the given program.
The description of media involves the interspersion of audio description snippets within the program’s original audio components, such as in between natural pauses in dialogue. This is to allow the individual the benefit of the description, without detracting from the existing content.
