Since I rarely watch and even more rarely listen to CBC (Corn Broadcasting Company) I’m wondering if they even offer audio description on their videos/TV programs?  If so, should they not be dealing with this problem?  I understand the reverend’s concerns, just wondering if he is not lamenting to the wrong people.

Don is not using an app for this, he wants to hear described video when playing CBC programs via the CBC website on his computer.

If you are using your iPad, go to settings. Then go to General and Accessibility. Under, “media, “heading, go to where it says audio descriptions. Make sure this is on bye  going into this and making sure prefer  audio descriptions is on. Text beside this should say something like, “when available, Use audio descriptions. “It’s a little hard to get to, but after you get into settings and general, switch your rotor to headings. Then, just go to the heading that says media. Need anymore help? Right back to me personally, or write back to this group.
Thank you for your question and I hope it helped, me giving detailed instructions.

I’m wondering if someone can help.  When I go to CBC TV’s website and press the link to the video of a TV program, I don’t know how to turn on descriptive video service.  Apparently there’s a button but I can’t find it on my PC connection.  Last week, while away from home, I listened to a CBC TV program using my IPod Touch.  Again, no discernible DVS link but as the program was finishing, lo and behold, a descriptive link was announced, I pressed it and got the last minute with DVS!


Any suggestions?
