Audio Description involves the accessibility of visual images present in various forms of multimedia (and other content) for individuals who are blind or have visual impairments. AMAC Accessibility can help turn your videos and multimedia that have important visual content into fully accessible, described media. By adding vivid, succinct, and objective narrated descriptions of prescient visual content between existing sounds and dialogue, we can help ensure that blind and visually impaired persons experience what sighted individuals take for granted.
