Does Arts Access provide Audio Description (AD)? 

Arts Access does provide Audio Description (AD) services. Audio Description is a narration service for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The audio describer provides an ongoing dialogue of visual events that are taking place on the stage, screen, at the museum, or even public speaking events. Arts Access has a roster of audio describers that describe at local theaters and live performances.
