Some good news for readers who rely on Audio Descriptions with their favourite SBS shows.
Guides for SBS World Movies and NITV will have an extra column for audio description (AD). These are already identified on SBS and SBS VICELAND guides.
SBS hopes to have this information displayed wherever possible in relation to its listings and titles.
These will be in place by Guides for May 30.
*Audio description (AD) is the auditory narration of the non-verbal elements of a program. During gaps in dialogue, it describes visual elements such as scenes, settings, actions and costumes. It is particularly beneficial to people who are blind and vision-impaired.
