Hi Lorraine,

You also might want to check out these resources from the Smith-Kettlewell VDRDC at the link below:


Among other things, you’ll find the always-helpful Guidelines and Standards. VDRDC has their own YouTube channel! The excellently produced “Do’s and Don’ts” videos are informative and concise enough to use as training material for staff or instructors IMO. (I’ve used them myself to train staff members.)

Hope that helps.

Hi Lorraine,
Do you mean audio description of the visual content in the video?
Here are two tools I know of, that might help:

* YouDescribe: http://youdescribe.org/search.php (Works with youtube videos)
* LiveDescribe https://livedescribe.com/pages/about (A tool you can download to add audio descriptions to any video, but web based tool only works with YouTube.
