Audio Description Services

What is Audio Description?

Audio Description (AD) provides descriptive narration of key visual elements that make visual media inclusive. It takes a video and talks you through it by describing elements such as actions, gestures, scene changes, images of text important to understanding, and any other significant visual information. It makes video and multimedia accessible by capturing what is happening on screen into audible descriptions that are incorporated during natural pauses in the sound track. It provides a mental picture of what is happening.

 

Captioning and Captioning Services

By captioning your video, it makes the video more accessible to students with disabilities, and it also helps other students when their situation doesn’t allow them to use sound on their device. To learn more about why you should caption your videos go to Why Caption?
