In a recent update to the ABC Watch app, users can now watch select shows with audio description straight from the app.
According to many sources who have used the app anywhere from a day to 2 years, when audio description is turned on under the media heading in the Settings, General, Accessibility section, audio description works on select shows.
Sources tell us that the shows that have audio description are, at the time of this writing, The Middle, Nashville, Modern Family, Fresh off the Boat, Shark Tank, Blackish and The Goldbergs.
There are a few episodes available that don’t have description, but most of them do.
It should be noted that ABC Watch is the only app that allows for streaming of their described content straight from the app. This story will be updated as news develops.
