Audio Description

Audio Description (AD) for videos is a recorded narrative or audio track that is added when a video contains visual information that is not naturally included in the audio or explicitly stated by the host or narrator. Audio descriptions increase accessibility of visual or video-based content for people who are blind, visually impaired, or otherwise benefit from additional audio supports. Specific and descriptive language is used to depict text, graphics, places, objects, or actions occurring on screen. OCALI utilizes two types of audio description. Standard audio description is used when visual information can be described during natural pauses in the video. When more time is needed to adequately describe visual information, extended audio description is used, which extends the length of the original video when enabled.
