I just got back from an evening out where I used the descriptive video

service for the second Hobbit movie, and I'm very pleased with it.
I don't know what this check box is, but I can speculate. All providers of
content via broadcast during primetime hours and any content streamed on the
web is in the process of being set up for descriptive services thanks to new
legislation that requires that this be in place by September of 2014. I
suspect this is to activate that feature for things that are webcast.

That's really strange. I just got a reply from my local movie theater
confirming to me that they have audio discription available in their
theater. So, now I am going to start seeing a new realese now and
I am not sure about the audio description in the Ease of Access Center,
but it sound like that might be just what it is. I have never noticed
it there before. Although it is becoming more prevalent these days,
audio description, like closed captioning, is not available on all
movies, but movies that do not have it are becoming more a thing of the
past. I am going to try it out on my computer though. I have lots of
movies, and surely some of them have audio description available on
them. Thanks for pointing this find out.

While browsing the Ease of Access Center, in the same area as theJAVA
Access Bridge, I found a checkbox for "Turn on audio description"._______________________________________________
Anyone tried using it? I presume it's for videos?
