Audio description services for the blind and visually impaired.
Voquent provides audio-narrated descriptions for films and other media content to enrich experiences for the blind and partially sighted. We only use human narrators, no synthesized speech here!
Audio description services make your content accessible and engaging to the one person in every thirty with sight loss. It's a growing audience.
A video description will typically fit into the natural pauses in the audio. For example in-between speech or during an opening scene.
Without an accurate audio description it is almost impossible for the blind or partially-sighted to comprehend the content fully. Properly engage this audience and you'll unlock a niche and loyal consumer.
Audio description services aren't just for TV and films. We provide a video description for corporate, education and sports organisations too.

Producing an accurate audio description isn't always easy.
Some content has a lot of speech, without a natural space for the narrator to describe the visuals.
If it's the intention to offer maximum accessibility to the blind and visually impaired the best approach is to 'pause' the video. This gives the narrator an opportunity to describe what's happening. Then the video starts again. However this can make the video much longer.
Maximum accessibility in this case is also more costly, since there will be:
- more for the video describer to write
- more for the narrator to record
- additional video editing work required
Of course, the visually impaired audience will appreciate it. They'll especially love our human narrators, cast to match the tone of the content.
If budget is tight and maximum accessibility isn't a priority the audio description will still be able to set the scene and give more context to what is being said.
We love writing and recording video descriptions for
- tv shows
- corporate videos
- training films
- celebrity interviews
- and much more!
