Sign My Petition Requiring All TV Channels In The United States To Provide Video Description Services For The Blind
The Blind Advocate July 24, 2019 Edit
As a blind person who likes to watch TV, I rely on video-description to know what’s going on in a TV show. Video description is defined as the insertion of narrated audio into key elements.
Did you know that most channels on TV, such as channels offered via cable, Satellite, etc do not have an SAP channel, (Secondary Audio Programming), that streams the video description track of a program? Some examples of channels that doesn’t have a SAP stream are: A&E Network, Game Show Network, (GSN), HBO, etc.
I have started a petition to the Federal Communications Commission, (FCC), requiring all TV channels, no matter how big or small, to provide video-description services for the blind. If you agree with me, please sign the petition and share it far and wide by clicking the link below!
