What are Audio Description Services? What is Described?

Audio description, also known as video description means describing the visual aspects of a video to enable the visually impaired and those with low vision to engage with the content. The primary purpose behind such a description is to make the video content like television programs accessible for those with eyesight problems. Viewers can listen to the audio description as they watch the content.

Our editors follow quality control measures to craft the narrative so that it does not overlap with the dialogues in the video.

We adhere to ISO standards for closed captioning and audio described content to deliver successful results.
