"I use audio description (AD) all the time when I’m watching TV – it’s great for dramas, documentaries and films.

Colin Palgrave smiling

"AD provides so much detail that I otherwise would have missed, and really injects life into a film. I lost my sight from rubella and when I was a child, my dad used to be my audio describer – describing films in great detail to me. I particularly remember him describing cowboys to me, and him getting very excited and vocal!  Using AD brings back those memories, and AD is my describer now.

"The service is so professional these days, it really makes a difference. I would encourage other blind and partially sighted people to try it out, it’s amazing how many people don’t know about AD but I regularly tell people to give it a go!"
