Alleviate the Difficulty of Publishing Audio Description

Most video players and platforms don’t support audio description. If they do, the only ways to publish are to swap in a second video asset with description burned into the audio track or to use a secondary audio track that contains both the description and the original audio. The technical difficulties of publishing audio description have been a major barrier for many video creators.


Our audio description plugin allows you to add audio description to videos without having to republish your audio or video files. The plugin is a simple embed that associates with your video. You can toggle audio description on or off and change the volume of the description separately from the volume of your original audio track.
