Please complete the RNIB audio description survey!
RNIB is conducting a short 15-question survey to establish which catch-up and video-on-demand (VOD) services are most popular among people with sensory loss. Catch-up services enable their viewers to watch programmes online, for a specified number of days following their broadcast on TV. Further to these catch-up players, there are video-on-demand (VOD) services that allow viewers to watch films or TV programmes at their leisure (for example downloading a film from a website). As there are hundreds of such services available today, RNIB would greatly appreciate your input into which services require our utmost attention. RNIB would love to work across all available services however with limited resources; RNIB would like to start with the services that you deem important. Click here for the survey:

Many people have discovered - or rediscovered - the joys of cinemagoing, thanks to audio description. Here's some recent feedback:

"Last night I thoroughly enjoyed a film for the first time in my life. The film was Gravity. I had heard it looks fantastic, amazing visuals, 'spectacular, all descriptions that are not very useful to person with severe sight loss. But I'm a space-buff, I just had to catch it on a huge screen. I've seen IMAX space films before I lost my sight, so kind of knew what to expect. For Gravity, all I could see on the cinema screen were black and white blobs and mis-shapes of various sizes. But that's more than I can usually see in a film. The contrast of the white suits of the astronauts floating around the black of space made the film clearer than any I've seen in a long time. But without the audio description explaining what was going on the story, with its many long dialogue-free scenes would have been lost on me. It was absolutely gripping. I was on the edge of my seat! I really felt like I was up there with the characters. It was a wonderful experience."
