Aunty begins audio descriptions. The ABC yesterday began a 15-month trial to provide an average of 14 hours of audio description content a week through iView.
Audio description content allows the blind and vision impaired to watch television by having a narrator describe important visual elements of TV. A second audio track describes action sequences, facial expressions and gestures so the blind can follow the plot. Content with the second track can be accessed through a dedicated tab in the ABC's iView app - detailed instructions on how to access it are available here.
