Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) has launched an online guide listing all programs available with audio description on Canadian TV channels.

The Described Video TV Guide was developed in partnership with Canadian broadcasters and the Canadian Radio-television & Communications Commission. It lists programs for five days at a time, with programs being searchable by title, network or time of broadcast. AMI intends the guide to aid consumers plan their TV viewing, and raise awareness of audio description in Canada.

AMI also operates AMI-tv (formerly The Accessible Channel), which broadcasts programs sourced from various networks, all of which are provided with audio description and captions.
