Audio description (AD) is the verbal narration of visual representations such as films, television programs and live performances. Between gaps in dialog, it describes elements such as scenes, settings, actions and costumes for the benefit of people who are blind or vision impaired.
AD is being included on an increasing number of DVD titles and is currently available on around 25% of DVDs that are released for the Australian market. DVDs that include AD can be obtained from any retailer or rental store, meaning that many of the films you currently have on-shelf will include this feature.
While many DVD titles include an “audio commentary or “directors commentary”, it is important to understand that this service is not the same as AD. To identify whether or not a title carries AD, you should look on the back of the DVD cover for the following logo:
While this logo is most commonly used to indicate that a title caries AD, there are some exceptions to this rule and instead, different wording may be used to indicate that a title carries this feature. Below are some examples of terminology that may be used in the absence of the AD logo:
descriptive video service
Audio narration for the blind
English audio descriptive”.
If you are unsure of whether or not a title carries AD, you might like to play the DVD to see whether or not you can locate the audio described track. On most DVD titles, The option to turn on AD is found in the “language” or set-up” menu. Alternatively, If your DVD remote has an “audio” or “language” button, you can simply play the movie and use this button to cycle through the different audio tracks that are available.
Media Access Australia also keeps a comprehensive listing of DVD titles that include AD. The list can be found at www.mediaaccess.org.au/dvds/dvd_database.
Thank you for your time and I hope that this information is of some assistance in helping you to meet the needs of customers who are blind or vision impaired in the future.
