Hi,
Could someone describe the status and level and quality of audio
description for TV shows and movies in developed countries like the
United Kingdom? I know that there is widespread audio description in
UK and something with Netblink in this field itself also transpired a
while ago.
I would love to know someone's personal experience, views, thoughts
and opinions about this in developed countries and the possibilities
and feasibility of bringing this to India as well.
Thanks.
