Accessible Events

 Audio Description 

Audio description is commentary for people who are blind or have a vision impairment.

Audio describers deliver a verbal commentary providing information on actions and visual elements, sometimes via a small transmitter. Users of this service can wear a personal listening device to enable full participation, depending on the size of the group.
