DVDs with “descriptive narration” have been specially enhanced to assist people with visual impairments. During pauses in the dialogue, a narrator describes the scenery, costumes, and actions that appear on the screen. Access Services maintains a small collection of classic, popular, and award-winning films in this format. To request our audio-described DVDs, call us at 703-324-8380 or TTY 703-324-8365. You may also e-mail us.
