Audio described DVDs on the rise in USA

no

The Audio Description Project in the USA has reported a record count of described DVDs for 2010.

The preliminary count is a whopping 48, far outpacing the entire history of described first-run movie DVDs from 2000 to 2009.

The increase is primarily due to the commitment of Sony, Universal Pictures and Disney to transfer description from movies described for cinema release to their DVD releases. Universal, however, has not committed to making the description available on all rental versions. Amazon USA is still not listing information confirming description, unlike Amazon’s UK site.
