Descriptive Video Experts Help Boost Entertainment Enjoyment for the Visually Impaired
Described video expert John Hauber helps visually impaired get more enjoyment out of videos, TV shows, and film.
Toronto, ON (I-Newswire) May 7, 2012 - If you have never heard of Descriptive Video it is the closed-captioning equivalent for the vision impaired. It`s an audio track containing all the original elements of a particular piece of video content (TV show, film, internet) plus a narration of all additional visual elements.
This narration describes all of the on-screen action as it unfolds, including the actions and appearance of the characters and their environments and what is not communicated through the dialogue, music, or sound effects.
Essentially, DV provides a more enriching video experience for the blind. And as 10% of the North American population is blind or vision impaired, creating accessible content is critical.
John Hauber Production's helps make video, TV, & Films more accessible for the visually impaired by providing described video services. JH Productions has worked with hundreds of entertainment companies such as: Global TV, IMAX Corporation, CityTV, CTV, Space, The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Comedy Network.
These entertainment companies come to John Hauber Productions in need of a DV services, so they can reach a broader (often neglected) audience.
How John Explains his DV Process:
"We review your content and ask the following questions: What’s the main story? What audience are we trying to reach? What is the level of language we should use? Who is the best narrator to complement the existing script? What is the overall tone of the content and how do we respect it with our narration? From the answers to these questions, we write the DV script with two main goals: To ensure the story is accurately told with the DV augmentations and to ensure our narration fits within your existing soundtrack." - John Hauber
