The agreement includes Hulu providing a separate audio track that describes the actions and the facial expressions of characters, allowing those with visual impairments to more fully experience what’s happening on the screen.
The Audio Description Project, an initiative of the American Council of the Blind, has instructions available for accessing the audio descriptions. Just log in to your Hulu account from a web browser, click on the gear icon, and pull up the Subtitle and Audio menu where you’ll see an option for turning on Audio Description.
On the Audio Description Project, you’ll also find a list of the programming that currently has audio descriptions available. As of now, there are four titles (all Hulu originals) available:
- Around the Way
- Fyre Fraud
- The Act
- The Handmaid’s Tale
Check out the Audio Description Project’s Twitter account for updates as this service continues to grow and more titles add audio descriptions.
