What Is Audio Description?
Typically, our film projects are made up of aspects such as ‘talking head’ or interview sections, B-roll footage, sound design and a soundtrack. Audio description is an additional element in the form of a voiceover that describes the contents of the video to those who might not otherwise be able to access it (e.g. people with a visual impairment).
Audio description can be used to set the scene of the video, read out any text on the screen and introduce different speakers. It ensures that all audiences can take in the content of the video even if they cannot see it.
