Multimedia player cannot play audio description

Link to Multimedia player cannot play audio description copied to clipboard



Where ICT displays video with synchronized audio, it MUST provide a mechanism to select and play an available audio description track.


People who are blind cannot see the video portion of multimedia (audio-video) content. In order to give people who cannot see access to the information conveyed by video content it must have an accompanying audio description. The audio description must describe all important visual information such as scenes, important actions, text on the screen, facial expressions, etc. People who are blind can listen to the audio description while watching the movie and not miss important visual information.

How to Fix

Fix this issue by ensuring that the video player has the ability to select and play an audio description track provided by the video content.
