What is Audio Description?

Audio Description (AD) enables those who are blind or have low vision to access videos, by having auditory narration of the visual elements in a video during the pauses in the audio track. The voice-over describes key visual elements such as gestures, actions and other visual information through narration, and includes speaker names, titles and other text that may appear on screen. Audio Description is done by a Voice Artist or a Synthetic Voice.

What do we offer?

Standard Audio Description involves adding the spoken description of visual elements in the natural pauses of the video, such as between sections of dialogue and during the beginning of a scene, so as to keep the video length the same as the original video. 

Extended Audio Description is required when a video may not have enough natural pauses. This involves the editing of a video to freeze or pause at points throughout the video to add the spoken description. Extended Audio Description will increase the length of the video.
