Netflix has a category of programs that offer audio descriptions, a voiceover narrating what is happening in a particular scene. This is not only a benefit for those who are visually impaired, it also turns Netflix content into an audiobook so you can keep up with your favourite shows and movies even if you can’t sit down to watch them. The audio description uses a high level of detail to paint a vivid picture of the scene when action is taking place and uses original dialogue audio.
When you play the movie just turn on ‘audio description’ the same way you add subtitles and play it through a speaker, earphones or car stereo. Finding content is as easy as typing “audio descriptions” in the search menu, which will bring up a long list of movies and TV shows. There are currently 50 titles.
Give it go!
