Hi Lorraine,

For YouTube videos there is a free service that may be of help, called YouDescribe: http://youdescribe.ski.org/rel/

It allows anyone to add extended audio description to a YouTube video, using the service's built in editor.

This may be adequate and is almost certainly the cheapest and fastest route.

Subject: [Athen] Youtube and a blind student


I have started to get more involved with Distance Education and need some help on Youtube videos that are being embedded into the course. We have a student who is blind and is taking a social media policy course. We need to do some voice describing for a video of about 4 minutes. Please can you give me some ideas on how people have done it. If it is a short video have you done it in house or have you sent it out for a professional organization to do.
