rainahaig.com: What is Audio Decription?

What is Audio Description?



Audio description refers to an additional narration track for blind and visually impaired viewers of visual media, including television and movies, dance, opera, and visual art. Audio Description may also be referred to 'AD' or as a 'narrative' soundtrack or commentary.

 

The audio describer talks through the presentation, describing what is happening on the screen during the natural pauses in the audio (and sometimes during dialogue if deemed necessary). Audio Description, or AD, provides spoken details of key visual elements - such as change of location, actions, facial expressions, gestures, even the clothes people are wearing - giving blind and patially sighted people the context and helping them set the scene and follow the action.

 

In theaters and similar venues, the user hears the audio description via a small earpiece or earphones connected to a tiny receiver. For live performances, a trained Audio Describer transmits the descriptions from elsewhere in the theater. For movies, the description might be prerecorded and synced to the movie soundtrack (though sometimes this is done live).

 

Below is an example of Audio Description script:You can watch an example of a film with Audio Description below - you need Windows Media Player to watch these:
