The Audio Description Project

 Other DVD or Streaming Videos With Audio Description Tracks

This page lists DVDs or streaming videos with audio description tracks available from sources other than Amazon, stores, or the primary streaming services. For example, some of these films were featured in Film Festivals but didn't make it to local cinemas, while others are from streaming services with very few offerings. All titles below are listed in the Master AD List.

We rely primarily on contributions from video owners or users who discover these videos, as it is hardly a comprehensive list. See our Streaming AD page for other possible sources of described streamed videos. (For example, we list a limited number of videos here available on Vimeo and YouTube. Clicking either of the preceding links will list their described videos.) "Fee" after the video information indicates there is a rental or purchase fee. To suggest additions to our list, use the Webmaster link at the bottom of the page.

LAST TITLE UPDATE:Sep 7, 2023; count = 52 titles (listed below, but not counting ReelAbilities Stream or Pluto TV titles, listed separately). Other content update: Sep 19, 2023. Look for Added below for the newest releases if the date above is fairly recent.

New If you have a Fire Stick or Fire TV product, you can sample a selection of episodes or movies from various streaming services for free by calling up Alexa and saying "Start the Preview Party." Except for Apple TV+ titles, very few of the titles available will likely offer AD, however.
