Audio Description

Residents will be aware that I have had a lot of correspondence exchanges with the media regulator OFCOM recently – mainly about Freeview provision in the West End and the issue of a local TV feed for Dundee.

From my contacts with OFCOM, I have become aware of Audio Description, something I think is well worth giving a mention.

Audio Description (AD) is a free TV service available on over 70 channels for people who have difficulty seeing what is happening on the screen. Like a narrator telling a story, an additional commentary describes body language, expressions and movements – allowing you to hear what you might not be able to see, so you don’t miss a thing.
