I couldn't find a source that had an audio description for this title.

The American Council of the Blind maintains a good database of titles with AD through their Audio Description Project: https://adp.acb.org/

If not available commercially, I've had some luck working with our library's media procurment procurement team to get AD from production companies directly via their sources. We had a blind student in a film class last fall where we were able to get five of fiteen titles with AD commercially, and then another five titles via the library's sources. It sure helped cover ground!

Hope that helps.

Hey all,

Anyone know if there is a descriptive audio track anywhere for the 2004 film version of the Merchant of Venice? Didn't see it listed as a feature in the Amazon or iTunes versions. Pretty new to finding descriptive audio tracks, so other than a google search, any other places I should be looking?
