As of April 2015, netflicks provides an option under language settings to choose “audio description”. This means that and family. Audio description provides a running commentary in the naturel breaks of a video, movie or TV show. Facial expressions, costumes, settings etc. are described. An example of this is “she looks pensively at her partner”, or “the woman gets out of the red sports car wearing a black ballgown” or “Dekes enters a cluttered back alley and approaches a fallen man”.
This service is availble on apple TV, your computer and smart phone. So far, I have discovered that Marvil Dare Devils, Orange is the new black, Bones, The big Bang Theory, Bloodline, House of Cards and CSIA-Special Victims Unit are described. for some of these, I found only the more recent seasons have audio description. So, play around and check the latest season before giving up on the option .
I would like to see a “Audio Description” category as there is no way to know which shows, movies, documentaries etc. have this option provided without opening each one.
