Training for Integrated Described Video
Integrated described video (IDV) is a description where the key visual elements are incorporated directly into the original production, removing the need to add described video post-production. As a result, the blind/partially sighted audience hears the same story as sighted viewers.
Traditional described video is a separate narration track that is executed after the program has been packaged. It requires scriptwriting and narration. IDV is not a separate track, it is executed from pre-production all the way to delivery. It impacts many facets of production and needs the participation of everyone (e.g. scriptwriters, narrators, hosts, reporters, guests, translations, sound effects, background noise, music, lyrics, etc).
