Where people who are blind are concerned, have you ever wondered how they enjoy movies? Language and dialogues form a very important part of this comprehension, of course. However, all the other things happening on screen like the actions, the drama, the location and the scenery – how do blind people enjoy these too? Audio Description makes this possible. It increases the movie enjoyment for blind or visually impaired persons.
