Descriptive Video Vancouver
Expand Your Audience with Descriptive Video
Descriptive video (DV) is a service that makes your series, documentary or drama more accessible to an ever-growing audience of 1.5 million blind and partially sighted Canadians. The CRTC is mandating more hours of described video broadcasting to meet this increasing demand.
In order to view an audio described program, a television viewer accesses their secondary audio program (SAP) track to hear a voice-over narration in between the lines of dialogue. This spoken audio description enhances their entertainment experience by describing on-screen action, character expressions, locations and many other important visual details.
