The highest quality audio experiences for visual media, performing arts, producers, publishers, and broadcasters.
Our audio descriptions are the best quality you can provide your Blind and low vision audiences: technical excellence, well-crafted content, and carefully researched context. We work with professional union voice talent, and we work with consultants from specific cultural communities, as well as from the Blind and partially sighted community, on all of our projects.
Also called Audio Description, we create narration with descriptions of the key visual elements of a film, television production, and videos of all kinds, such as setting, character descriptions, body language, and other key details that benefit blind and partially sighted audiences. All of our DV adheres to the codes and standards as set out by AMI/CAB and streaming services such as Netflix. Described Video service is available in English and French.
Live Audio Description
We are unique in our expertise of audio description of live events, such as performing arts, in real time as they are happening. This service is provided in-theatre and online via Zoom and other platforms. Our CEO’s professional experience as an actor and director make Superior Description Services special in our deep understanding of live events and the nuances of your audience’s audio described experience.
Extended Audio Description
To provide a fuller and more in depth experience for your audience, we extend our descriptions to include audio introductions and other content enhancements that enhance your audience’s understanding and experience of your production.
We create detailed descriptions of images for gallery exhibitions, navigation, festivals, and audiobooks, in audio and text form. Our descriptions are the best quality you can provide for your audiences: we not only include detailed and accurate description of the visual, but also cultural or societal context, wayfinding friendly references, and anything else our consultants feel will support your audience.
We create podcasts that are entertaining for sighted, as well as blind and partially sighted listeners. Our podcast services include audio tours of exhibitions and festival sites, interviews, and vibrant narration.
