Audio described movies on itunes
This is an excellent idea. If you search for the word audio, a few titles pop up, most of them Disney movies. The only new movie that I have found so far with audio description is The Martion. I don't have a link to it, but finding it should be simple enough. Hopefully over time, more titles will be added and maybe some day, all new releases will have audio description and it won't just be a pleasant surprise like it is now.
Nonstop and home have AD as
Nonstop and home have AD as well
AntMan also has
AntMan also has audiodescription, at least here in australia and I believe the US has it as well.
This is a good idea, listing the movies that have description, keep in mind that particular movie may not be described in your country.
uk left out again?
These movies are not in the uk, yet again left in the cold.
The UK is not left out, but needs to catch up
The Martian and Home have audio description in the UK, but Non Stop and Antman do not. Happy to see we aren't at zero AD films in the UK but clearly we are still a little behind America and Australia. I contacted apple about this a year or so ago and they said the film companies have control over what content they make available. Although I believe this to be true, I also believe apple themselves have some influence as well obviously
australia has a long way to go as well with AD
Let me tell you all them Disney movies were only USA as well but with the help of me they are now in the Australian store I can't say how I manage to do that but I did.
If you want to no how I did that read my blog at www.latrobemusicblog.wordpress.com and scroll down to the post named movies not made accessible in the Australian stores and leave a comment in the website. Apple Reyes to tell me as well its not there doing but I called them a layer good luck contact the accessibility team at Apple about this by email.
Them tsp have been added
Them two movies have been added keep up the good work everyone and keep sending links to me to add to the list
Most of todays films are described on Bluray, even the starwars box set is described, only not in the iTunes store.
I say if they can do it for Bluray, why not iTunes?
It's only an extra audio track.
This is for Australia, I can't speak for other countries.
don't need to access the audio description feature on your iPhon
Hello everyone I would like to let you know the Disney movies which are listed in all the movies that I have provided above does not need to be activated through your iPhone as soon as you downloaded movies audio description automatically comes on
But all the other movies you need to go into your iPhone general then go to accessibility and scroll down until you get to audio description and turn it on
And like I said if anyone comes across any AD movies in the ITunes send me the link and I will add them to the rest.not in of a link that
The Revenant is listed with AD for its release. 20th century fox seem to be leading the way with providing AD on itunes
Yes I have added this to the list already on AppleVis
I have already added this movie to the list of Audio description movies on this AppleVis website there is three more as well. Go to the list to see them all
iTunes AD movies in UK
Spy, has AD on the UK iTunes store. This was the first AD movie I've purchased on iTunes.
I've brought a few DVD's over the weekend at HMV with AD. Legend, Birdman, and Life of Pye. Annoyed that the UK iTunes store is still a bit behind.
Keep it up guys...
Not showing AUDIO DESCRIPTION
I have added spy to the list but the other three you said is not showing AUDIO DESCRIPTION on them So people want know to download them if it's not showing AUDIO DESCRIPTION on them
Have you signed my petition yet
How is The Force Awakens on this list? To the best of my knowledge, it hasn't been released for home media yet...has it?
It had AUDIO DESCRIPTION next to it
It Says Pre order and it has AUDIO DESCRIPTION on it so I guessing it would be but if not I can easyley remove it.
Ok, that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying. (If TFA had come out and I hadn't known about it, I was going to have to seriously reconsider some life choices, haha...)
there is lots more now then just the marshon
justed add a new movie today checkout the list that i have created and keep signing the petition only started of with Five Audio description movies and now we have about 14 since larst week.
3 more Audio description movies has been added to this list
i have added some more Audio description movies to the list of Audio description movies list. three more movies came today.
this is getting better but still lots more to go yet.
The list of audio description movies can be found here
Hello David and you all the rest here is a list of audio description movies now found on the iTunes Store I regularly update this every time they come available http://www.applevis.com/forum/accessibility-advocacy/list-audio-description-movies-itunes
Thanks. I deleted my question
Thanks. I deleted my question when I realised the list was on this very page, lol.
It's a good idea.
movies already purchased
Hi, this list is great, although not all the films listed have AD in the UK unfortunately. It's a good start but as above would like to see a lot more added in the coming months.
Does anyone know if you have already purchased a film that then has audio description added, if you automatically get this? Presumably you don't have to purchase the movie again...
I apologise to the ones that cannot open these movies above they
Hello let me start by saying I'm sorry that these movies do not play in any other country iTunes stores If you keep signing my petition and put that as a comment on the petition to provide these movies in all stores then Apple will see it.
Or I encourage people who are blind or vision impaired in other countries to contact Apple and tell them what you want and you're welcome to use my petition to show them Tell them that a petition has been created showing Apple important it is to bring audio description movies to the iTunes Store
But with in the meantime if you happen to come in across any audio description movies in your own country let me know but the problem is I won't be able to open them on my end Example there is one movie in this list that will not open in the Australian store and that is non-stop I will see if I can list the movies by country if you send me any more
Hi all i have just updated two more movies into this list
i have just updated two more movies to this list
Star Wars Not with AD in the UK
Hi, I purchased Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the UK yesterday and it does not have an AD track :-( although it was advertized as having one when I pre-ordered it.
I'm sorry that has happened to you contact apple and tell them
I am sorry that has happened to you you may want to contact Apple and let them know you have the rights to don't be scared to speak up.
The Star Wars movie you are talking about works fine in Australia I have provided a list of audio description movies on the Apple this website here but they are only in the Australian store only I cannot we take responsibility if they don't play in other stores
Has that been the first movie you have downloaded and have you turned on the Audio description feature on your iPhone under general accessibility then scroll down to audio description and turning it on
Not in Ireland
Hi the new Star Wars doesn't have AD in the Irish store either.
Before it was released it was advertised as having AD, but it no longer does. Now closed captioning is the only accessibility feature listed.
What's the best email address to feed back to Apple about this? I'm not sure if the accessibility address is the right one for this, as they don't take feature requests to the best of my knowledge.
Find my petition on this
Find my petition on this sight and sign it and tell them your problem on there
AD Films Disappearing
In the UK store I've noticed recently that not only are films being added to the list with AD, but there are some that were on the list previously that are not any more. This is either one of two things I suspect. Either they remove less popular titles if no-one orders them, or there is a bug with the search for audio described titles resulting in only the most recently added films appearing. By which I mean those most recently added with AD, not the most recently released films, as several that have appeared lately are a few years old.
I have noticed this as well in the Australian store as well
I think it must be an IOS Bug issue.
Because there has been a few times my Iphone6 when using voice over in Safari has been freezing up when voice-over has been on I don't know if this has been happening to other people as well if so contact Apple and let them know and let me know as well.
