Switched At Birth now has audio description

Today we have some small news to report. Actually, it’s big news for Switched At Birth fans who are blind or visually impaired but it’s small news for us because we still have a lot to do in terms of digital accessibility for the blind.

Thanks to our efforts, Switched At Birth now has all four seasons described on Netflix. Yes, Switched At Birth has audio description!

Season 5 is almost over. The final episode airs soon on TV and will soon go up on Netflix and otherwise soon after. The entire show will have audio description!

Even though our Disney contact said that he would give the audio description tracks to Apple, we have yet to confirm if Switched At Birth is described in iTunes. We can confirm Netflix though. All seasons are described thus far and soon, the whole show will have audio description.

We hope to make Amazon see the benefits of adding audio description to their platform next. We will be busy for a good long while but we just wanted to share the great news with you all.
