Audio Description Services

What is Audio Description?

Audio description (AD) offers people who are blind or have low vision an understanding of what is happening visually within a theatre, television, film, DVD, museum, exhibition or other arts related productions.

It is an additional narration that succinctly paints an image of transitions, movements, gestures, props, settings, costumes and scenery woven between the dialogues.

Vision Australia works with Theatres around Australia to provide audio description for live performances. We also  advocate for increased audio description across cinema and television.
