Sorry, exceedingly long title there...
So, I went to the cinema for the first time in years last night to watch Infinity War... Spoiler alert, it's far fetched... Anyway, I used one of the audio description headsets which was fantastic, if not a little uncomfortable and hard to balance with the ambient audio track and dialogue. Ended up wearing it half on and half off and looking like a complete div.
Anyway... This got me thinking. I enjoy watching films with family and friends but I don't like them describing it to me because, most of the time its during some important dialogue, which we both then miss and lols of rewinding ensues. What would be great is a means of connecting to the Apple TV with a bluetooth earpiece that pipes through the AD, when available. I'm not going to ask family and friends to put up with audio description on the main sound system, it completely ruins atmosphere when someone in a brash Birmingham accent announces "They kiss tenderly, John looks sad!"
I'm not aware of any way of doing this, is anyone else? Could I, for example, put AD on my iPhone for Netflix and just hope to start both the Apple TV and iPhone playing at the same time? Or has anyone found any other delicious and delightful solution?
Looking forward to your replies.
