Audio description of videos helps make the content of videos accessible to blind or visually impaired people. These descriptions help to convey significant visual information on the screen that may not be included in the audio track.
MedlinePlus has audio descriptions for our health videos. Audio descriptions on MedlinePlus are alternative audio tracks that can be played instead of the regular audio tracks for the videos.
The audio description alternative includes descriptions of the visual content in addition to the regular narration of the video. The descriptions are spoken during pauses in the regular audio content.
For questions about audio descriptions on MedlinePlus, please contact us.
