Anyone can access Netflix; you just have to find the right title. Here’s how to find movies and TV shows with audio descriptions on Netflix.
Audio description is used as a narration describing what is happening on the screen. This optional feature can describe actions, facial expressions, clothing, scene fluctuations, and settings as the content plays.
How to Find Titles with Audio Descriptions on Netflix
Fortunately for some people, audio descriptions are available for most Netflix streaming content, including its original content. The platform is adding new titles to the list all the time.
To determine which episodes and movies have audio descriptions enabled, you can visit Netflix’s Audio Descriptions page.
If you’re on a mobile device, all you need to do is open the Netflix app and tap category near the top of the screen.Then, scroll down to the bottom and click audio description.
If you want to determine which Netflix titles have Audio Description enabled before purchasing a subscription, you can find a current list of products on the Audio Description item webpage.
It’s important to note that not all TV shows include audio descriptions of every episode on the Netflix platform. If Netflix doesn’t have an audio description for the title you want to watch, try another streaming platform. For example, you can also enable subtitles and audio descriptions on Amazon Prime Video.
How to turn on audio descriptions on Netflix
Now that you’ve found titles with audio descriptions, you need to enable them. This is how you do it:
- Play the show or movie you want to watch with an audio description.
- On a mobile device, tap the screen. On smart TVs and game consoles, press the down or up arrow on the remote.
- Next, select the Audio and Subtitle boxes.
- Under the Audio section, select audio description. If not present, the audio description for that particular title is not available.
To save your preferences, you must set the audio and subtitle box settings on titles with a maturity level of teen or above. Any settings for children’s content will only apply to that title, not the entire account.
