Consumer and Commercial Services

On this page we list all the individual, organization, and corporate services that we know about outside the USA that are involved with audio description, provided the organization has validated the information in the previous three years.  The commercial companies typically employ professional audio description personnel who write the description for movies, DVDs, and other media, while the organizations tend to provide audio description services via trained describers for local events.  Listing on this page does not imply an endorsement of any kind from the American Council of the Blind or the Audio Description Project, and we reserve the right to not list or remove a listing that we feel false or misleading in any way.  Note:  We list phone numbers the way they are given to us, so you may need to adapt to where you are calling from.
