Jump to Titles. The following programs are AUDIO DESCRIBED IN ENGLISH on USA Amazon Prime Video (streaming or purchase). This listing is provided by the Audio Description Project based on input directly from Amazon. Amazon accepts feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LAST TITLE UPDATE: Nov 14, 2018; count = 430 titles. Additions to this list are generally posted on Twitter and Facebook. The date is the date added here during the last month, which may be slightly after Prime Video added it.
Audio Description of Amazon Prime Video movies and TV series is provided as an additional language track, just like it is on DVDs. All you need to do is go to the detail page of the movie or TV show you would like to watch (by clicking our link), click on Watch Now, go to the Subtitles and Audio menu and choose English Audio Description as the language from the Audio menu. If you make a choice of English Audio Description once, it will persist to the next movie which has the option on the same device. You can start a movie on one device and switch to another, but both devices must have enabled description. NOTE: Some 4K videos ("Ultra HD") may also have description, even though they are not identified here.
These titles may be watched on the following DEVICES: All Amazon video products such as the Fire TV line; iOS devices (including Apple TV); PCs; Macs; and Android devices. Others may be added in the future. iOS and Android users must install the free Prime Video app. Using iOS and Voiceover, double-tap the screen and swipe until you reach the Audio menu. Android users would use TalkBack. On Apple TV, swipe down, then twice to the right to get to the Audio menu; and note that at the present time, description is the first English choice, unmarked, subject to change. Sighted assistance may be required the first time, but your choice will be remembered for each device. Of possible interest: a podcast on the Toshiba Fire TV and Amazon's Fire Cube (demo by Amazon's Peter Korn, Director of Accessibility).
Fees: Original Amazon-produced series and some movies are free for Prime members (denoted as "Included with Prime" online). Other titles can generally be rented or purchased, though some are purchase-only. In a few cases, due to licensing issues movies on this list that are denoted "Included with Prime" online will not have AD in the free streaming version, but will have AD if you rent or purchase them. Note that for series, not all seasons are described, and our season counts below indicate only the number of described seasons.
