Audio Description provides access to the visual elements – action, costumes, settings, gestures, facial expressions and other visually engaging images – of television/film, museum exhibitions, theater and a variety of events.
All people can appreciate the added detail and vivid highlights made possible through the effective use of Audio Description. For example, while Audio Description makes the images in children's books more accessible to kids who have low vision or are blind, the words a describer uses helps develop sophisticated language skills for all children.
A picture may be worth a thousand words. But Audio Description Associates' trained writers and voice talents use words with precision to conjure vivid and lasting images. The result: people who are vision impaired can more fully enjoy cultural events of every kind, and those experiences are enhanced for every participant.

NEW! Audio Description Associates is under contract with the American Council of the Blind to direct its Audio Description Project (ADP), a major description promotion and production initiative. Our first two Conferences (in conjunction with ACB's annual meetings, 2009 in Orlando--2010 in Phoenix) were tremendous successes and were each followed by major AD training sessions. In July 2012, we'll meet in Louisville, KY! Stay tuned for more information.
