Q: What is audio description and how do I find it?

A: Audio description offers blind and low-vision audiences the opportunity to enjoy television or film programming. It is a narrative description of onscreen actions, visual cues (such as characters and costumes), and text appearing in graphics or the video.

The audio description track can be found on a secondary audio channel available on most television sets, accessible through your cable or satellite box.
