Sport is for everyone and our Audio Description service opens up your event to blind and vision impaired fans!
Listen to this page:
Audio Description is a specialist form of commentary which provides blind and vision impaired listeners detailed descriptions of everything occurring, far surpassing the level of detail that exists in traditional broadcast commentary. Our audio describers are trained to keep up with play to the second and will focus on the sporting action, but they will also provide extra details that sighted viewers may take for granted such as presentations and ceremonies before the action kicks off, the strips being worn, discussions between officials and everything else of note that happens in live sport!
At AMS we pride ourselves on delivering AD to the highest of standards. In 2017 we formed a partnership with the Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) to provide English audio description at all major UEFA finals. We offered this service at every stage of the rescheduled Euro 2020. We also trained commentators in every host nation to deliver AD in their native tongue.
From non-league to the Premier League, the Champions League to the Olympic Games, our Audio Description Commentary has vastly improved the experience of blind and vision impaired fans of live sport.
Every sport can benefit from Audio Description and our staff and wide-ranging network of commentators have a vast knowledge of the intricacies of almost every sport, ready to bring your event to life for those who may otherwise miss out on the full experience. We believe Audio Description is an essential service and we are always looking to help improve access to live sport with forward-thinking partners.
