Are you curious about audio described movies? According to the American Council for the Blind, they are films that employ “a narration service (provided at no additional charge to the patron) that attempts to describe what the sighted person takes for granted — those images that a person who is blind or visually impaired formerly could only experience through the whispered asides from a sighted companion.”
