DVDs and Blu-ray Discs With Audio Description

Welcome to the only complete listing of USA audio described commercial videos!

On this page we list details about all the first-run movies* in the USA that have been released with audio description tracks on DVDs and Blu-ray discs in 2015, along with links to purchase them via Amazon.  Purchasing them via our links helps pay for this website!  You can follow the announcements as they occur via Twitter or our Facebook page.  This page is generally updated on Tuesday or Wednesday of each week in which a newly described DVD is released.  (* We also list TV series on DVD and a few special-interest releases, but no educational products and rarely special-order features.)

Audio description on a disc is listed under Languages on the back cover as English Audio Description, English Descriptive Audio, or English DVS.  Director's Cuts or Unrated versions sometimes do not have description.  Special Features rarely contain description.  Your best bet is to order/watch the theatrical version when available and order via Amazon, not their Marketplace sellers.  While we typically link to the DVD disc on Amazon, generally the Blu-ray versions of DVDs listed here since the fall of 2009 also have description.  Simply follow the link provided within Amazon to the Blu-ray version, if you prefer that format.  NOTE:  Amazon almost never lists the availability of audio description on their videos (though Barnes and Noble occasionally does if they list "Menu" options:  look for "Audio Options" under "Setup"), but our links should take you to described copies!  If you want to find out what's coming soon on DVD, check out the DVDs Release Dates site.  CAUTION:  This is a USA-only listing, and Canadians sometimes find DVDs listed here do not have description in Canada ...

Note:  Online movie rental/purchase services such as Verizon's FIOS On Demand and Comcast's Xfinity On Demand may offer audio description tracks on some movies not listed here - notably those from Warner Bros Home Video, which so far has never released a DVD with audio description.  (If you don't like that, write to:  Mr. Ronald J Sanders, President, Warner Home Video, 4000 Warner Blvd., Burbank, CA 91522!)

I really appreciate your ongoing efforts, and I recommend your site to other blind friends,
and especially parents of blind children.
