Last month we provided an up-to-date list of audio described (AD) movies in the Australian iTunes store. Some of the listed titles had specific versions that were marked: (For blind viewers). However, there have been some very recent changes to the way that some movies with AD are presented on Australian iTunes.

Recent updates

Since we shared a list of iTunes movies with audio description last month, there has been some updates. Some distributors are now switching away from having different versions of the same movie and adding the option to enable AD in the main version. So when searching for movies with AD on iTunes, it is important to remember to check the main version of the movie to see if it has AD included, if there is no specific audio described version available.
