Closed captioning has become ubiquitous in the video industry. It’s required on all videos for broadcast and streaming services. But what’s this Audio Description stuff that you occasionally get requests for?

Audio Description is an audio track containing both the original audio and descriptions of the visual, written to act as the eyes of a blind person.

Audio Description for Blind People has 3 elements that go into the service:

  1. Writing
  2. Audio recording
  3. Audio editing

Audio Description is more art than science, but there’s definitely a technique to it. You have to let the story tell itself. Colors matter. Explaining is bad. What you see is what you say.

We haves recently added Audio Description services after extensive training with Joel Snyder, the man who practically invented the format.
