Audio Description

In order to communicate visual information in educational video content to the blind, AST has developed a service and innovative delivery method for Extended Audio Description (WCAG 2.0 SC 1.2.7), which is a more thorough form of audio description than standard audio description (WCAG 2.0 SC 1.2.5). With extended audio description, the video is paused when descriptions are required, allowing enough time to fully communicate the visual information and make the educational content accessible to those who are blind or have low vision. Our audio descriptions meet WCAG 2.0 Level AAA standards. See how extended audio descriptions work here.
