Audio description gives blind and low vision people access to the visuals of tv shows and movies.
Last month alone, 3994 series and movies included audio description!
Many people, including sighted people, and some of our nearly 30 million blind and low vision audiences, aren’t aware of this track. Let’s build awareness on Audio Description Awareness Day!
To help launch Audio Description Awareness Day 2020, Captivating Magazine is launching the Audio Description Day Challenge.
Social distancing isn’t social isolation! Now, more than ever, we need to connect with others. One way we can connect is by watching shows together virtually.
Our challenge to you is to invite a friend or family member who isn’t aware of audio description, challenge them to virtually watch it with you, and then share your experience on social media using #ADADChallenge
Call To Action:
Know someone who’s never watched a movie or show with Audio Description? Starting on April 16th, Audio Description Awareness Day, ask them to watch a show with audio description along with you virtually, and then share your experience using #ADADChallenge
Use the hashtag to talk about your experience. What was it like? Did you get used to it? Were you able to access it easily?
