What is all this?
Well, this is a podcast of public-domain films where I’ve added something called “audio description,” which is additional narration telling people who are vision-impaired important visual elements of a show as they happen, helping the film tell its story. This means everyone can listen to it like an audiobook.
To learn more about the history of description and where else it is used (hint: quite a few places but not enough!), check out the wikipedia articles on the Descriptive Video Service and audio description. Also, the Audio Description Project has a great one-off podcast which explains what audio description is and how to access it on tv and find it available in live theatre and in cinemas (which a focus on the U.S.). Play the podcast here.
