Video Descriptions

  • Requires interpretation on the part of the audio describer, not translation.

Remember that video descriptions are audio descriptions of the events or settings on the video added to the audio track of a multimedia presentation. Comments like "Fred enters the room with a fearful look on his face" are interspersed between the normal audio segments, if possible. Such additional audio requires the remake of the audio track of the multimedia content. Unlike a transcript, video description also requires interpretation on the part of the audio describer, not translation. Was that fear on Fred's face? or anticipation?
