About Video Description

Video description (also know as descriptive video or audio description) is provided for those who are blind or visually impaired. It offers additional audio about activities on screen that are essential to understanding the overall content. This added audio is inserted during pauses in the regular audio content.

In the classroom setting, it might be valuable to include video description in a video of a science experiment to ensure that a blind or visually impaired student can fully grasp the concepts being discussed.
