What is audio description and how does our process work? 

Audio description (AD) primarily services blind and partially sighted people by providing a voiceover narration to content to describe visual elements, such as body language, scenery or movements vital to a content's narrative.

We work with our network of handpicked, expert audio describers to enhance your project. Our voice over artists will have clear, distinctive voices to distinguish from other dialogue, ensuring your end-results are perfect, every time.

We deliver a straightforward, end-to-end process to you:

  • Firstly, send us your original video file. We will then discuss with you your exact requirements for a voice over artist/audio describer, including language and accent. We will also clarify any complex visual elements with you.
  • We’ll then send your content to one of our trusted and trained audio describers, who will come back to us with a transcreated ad script. This will contain details of the important on-screen visuals and cues – such as body language or expressions – that provide vital context to help understand the video content.
  • Thirdly, the specialised audio description script is sent to a second describer to undergo a quality assurance process of editing and proofreading.
  • You will then be sent the edited script, which you may suggest edits for or sign off with your approval.
  • Finally, we will organise the recording of the voice over. We can either deliver an audio file of your AD or embed and sync the audio to your video content.

If you require audio description services for live events, we can also provide experts upon request.

Why now's the time to invest in Audio Description?

We’re living in a multimedia-led world, one that has rapidly shifted to digital-first content in the past year. That’s why it has never been more important to consider digital accessibility for all.

For example, did you know that video content is set to make up more than 82% of all consumer internet by 2022? If there are an estimated 285 million people are living with sight loss worldwide, with 39 million people who are blind and 246 million people who are partially sighted, how can we ensure that video content continues to be accessible to all internet users?

The aim of audio description services is to do exactly that. Audio description services are essential for those who are blind or partially sighted, in order to:

  • Boost Accessibility: To ensure that everyone can enjoy different types of media, digital content and live events, such as concerts, cinema screenings or theatre, as well as cultural tours at museums, galleries and famous landmarks.
  • Foster participation at meetings: To be inclusive and encourage everyone to participate in video conferencing where visually-led content like presentation platforms or video content is used.
  • Adhere to accessibility guidelines: There are also accessibility requirements and internal standards that many companies must meet. For example, media regulator Ofcom has made recommendations that Video-On-Demand providers should have a duty to provide audio description for at least 10% of their content catalogues.

What is Audio Introduction? 

In some cases, perhaps due to budget or time constraints, audio descriptive services aren't always the right fit.

This is where audio introduction can be a crucial solution.

Audio introduction narrates key visual elements of a scene or piece of content, before it begins – ensuring a wider audience can still understand your content.
