New Audio Technology Will Help Visually Impaired Audiences Experience ‘Finding Dory’ Like Never Before
Aplus.com reports that Disney and Pixar have collaborated on a “smart-syncing audio descriptive narration program” that will allow low-vision and blind audience members to enjoy their latest film, Finding Dory, the much-anticipated sequel starring Ellen Degeneres.
Coinciding with Finding Dory‘s premiere today, the narration program is available on the Disney Movies Anywhere app via iTunes.
This is the first time the functionality is available on the big screen, though home audiences have previously been able to use this functionality with the studio’s last 16 movies — including Finding Nemo, of course.
Viewers can access the DMA app on their iPhone or iPad, and listen to the narration through headphones.
