What is Video Description: Video description is the insertion of audio narrated descriptions of a television program's key visual elements into natural pauses in the program's dialogue, which make video programming more accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired. CBS makes video description available as a secondary audio service (also sometimes referred to as a secondary audio program or SAP) for selected programs.
FCC rules require local TV station affiliates of CBS, ABC, Fox, and NBC located in the top 25 TV markets to provide 50 hours per calendar quarter (about 4 hours per week) of video-described prime time and/or children's programming. Local TV stations in markets smaller than the top 25 also may provide video description. Check with your local TV stations.
