The new Disney movies everywhere IOS app sets precedents for all inclusiveness
If you have not heard about the new Disney movies everywhere app, on the iPhone, or iPad, you are greatly missing out. In todays podcast I chat with you about my thoughts on how this revolutionizes video on demand. One of the primary reasons that I hear from some of my blind friends that they maintain their cable subscription is that video description is available on cable. Yes, you might need sided assistance in order to set it up, however in most cases once set up it will work by default with shows passing Audio Description. If additional video on demand services started bringing description to their content, even using an obscure way of getting the audio to you, then it’s possible more blind individuals would elect for this type of service. Especially since we could then independently select the programming we want to watch.
The podcast in this episode on apple Vis can be found here, and Thomas Domville does a wonderful job walking you threw the app to learn the way it’s designed. I’m very thankful that he demonstrated to us voiceover users how to be able to start streaming the audio description for a synchronized video. At first I was thinking it was going to be difficult, however after listening to this podcast, I decided to download the application and try it out.
Imagine my surprise when one of the first screens that appeared was a notification that video description was available on the application. I obviously was aware of this fact since I downloaded the application because I heard about it on this podcast. However, I thought about A blind parent who might download the application for her kid, to enjoy movies on her next family road trip. And the surprise that they would receive when they open the application for the first time, and be notified of the availability of video description. Originally believing the application might be a way to allow your kids to watch their content independently, ending up to being a tool allowing you the freedom to enjoy new release movies at this time with everyone else. at any theater.
I am an avid user of Netflix, and especially enjoy the fact that new audio describe content seems to be added quite often.

Consider how having an added way to connect with an additional market of blind or visually impaired individuals could increase your business. What elements could you use in an audio described track to help a wider audience be able to understand the training material your creating?
