Audio Descriptions

Difficulty: Advanced


  • Content

Audio descriptions can enhance accessibility of video content for users who are blind or have other visual disabilities. Audio descriptions provide an auditory presentation of content that is presented visually, but not presented audibly in video. They typically take the form of a narrator that describes the important information or content elements that sighted users can see. Audio descriptions are difficult and costly to produce. You typically must present two versions of the video. When producing video content, if you simply ensure that all visual content is presented audibly, then there will be no need for audio descriptions.
