Described video enables the visually impaired student population to more easily access films, documentaries, and videos presented in class. This service can either take the form of an adapted video or be carried out by an accompanying person.
Video description consists of adapting a video document to add a verbal description of what is happening on the screen. It will usually take the form of a narrative that describes the scenes, text displayed, or other elements necessary to understand the visual content.
