3Play Media Provides Audio Description for Online Video

Audio Description narrates the relevant visual information contained in a video and is an accommodation for blind and low-vision viewers. These descriptions fit into natural pauses in the video’s audio track to provide context, to clarify speakers, and to articulate visual elements that are critical to gain a comprehensive understanding of the video.

Our Audio Description solution is competitively priced, with reliable turnaround and a streamlined process, integrating with leading online video platforms such as Youtube, Wistia, Kaltura, Brightcove, Ooyala, Vimeo, and more. With use of the 3Play Plugin, you’re able to add all of 3Play Media’s solutions to your video, as well as embedded SEO content to help improve your video’s search ranking. Adding audio description to videos is a requirement under Section 508, and ensures you are complying with ADA, WCAG 2.0 AA, and 504/508 requirements.
