What is Audio Description?
Audio description consists of a descriptive narration of visual events as they occur in a video. Similar to closed captioning, audio description’s purpose is to ensure that your video is fully accessible to all audiences, in line with the Equality Act. In terms of video, audio description consists of an audio file which can be played simultaneously with a film or programme, where a narrator describes visual elements of the video.
The Full Audio Description Process
Adding audio description to videos be a complex process. Closed captioning requires typing services mixed with video timings and video editing. Similarly, audio description requires all of this and more. Audio descriptions need to fit in between existing dialogue to ensure that narration don’t overlap other sound. Incorrect timings within voiceovers can lead to sound information being lost and not heard effectively. In summary, working with sound within such tight time constraints can be a painstaking process, where voice artists need to alter speed of speech in order to fit within the time frames given. Sound also needs to be edited post recording to ensure the best synchronicity.
