Descriptive Videos and DVDs

Descriptive videos and DVDs provide narration of key elements, such as characters’ actions, costuming, gestures and facial expressions as well as scene changes and onscreen text. These descriptions are heard during the natural pauses in dialogue, and the result is a finished soundtrack that enables visually impaired viewers to fully understand a film through listening. Video cassettes are numbered 1-500; all DVDs are numbered 500 and above.

Circulation is limited to patrons registered for the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (LBPH). As with other LBPH material, registered patrons are able to receive descriptive videos through the mail for one month, no postage necessary. To register for the service, please visit the LBPH homepage homepage.
