Creating audio descriptions for TV and movies

Multimedia accessibility is advancing from alt text for images to
providing audio description for the action in TV and movies.

You ought to try it!

Major cinemas are now equipped with audio descriptions on their movies
and small personal devices for users to hear those descriptions. Stop at
the customer help desk and ask for the device to provide audio
descriptions for the blind and visually impaired. It plays a special
sound track on the film. During gaps in the dialogue, the user can hear
the recorded description of relevant actions.

Now, you can learn to create it yourself!
