Audio description makes audio/visual media accessible to people who are blind or low vision by using words to capture what is happening on screen.

Audio description is played during natural pauses or periods of silence within the audio track.

This includes, but is not limited to, the creation of “how to guides”, lesson plans, activities, computer modules, and recordings suitable for rebroadcast or for on-demand training. Training Support Services will include development of role-based Section 508 training courses. The training is for any area of support or Section 508 compliance, and includes regulatory compliance even where the underlying technologies or compliance mandates evolve.
