DVDs and Blu-ray Discs With Audio Description

Welcome to the only complete listing of audio described commercial videos in the USA!
This is a USA-only listing, and Canadians sometimes find DVDs listed here do not have description in Canada.

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 2016, 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 a few special-interest videos, but no educational products and rarely special-order features.)

Audio description on a disc is generally listed under Languages on the back cover as English Audio Description, English Descriptive Audio, or English DVS.  (Exception:  Warner Bros sometimes lists this information in the lower right corner of the back cover.)  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 below 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:  Except for Sony releases, 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.  Recently, Amazon has been offering images of the back covers of some DVDs, so that's another place to look.  If you want to find out what's coming soon on DVD, check out the DVDs Release Dates site or Amazon's New and Future Releases.

Note:  Online movie streaming/rental/purchase services such as Verizon's FIOS On Demand and Comcast's Xfinity On Demand plus iTunes or Netflix may offer audio description tracks on some movies not listed here (because the description tracks were produced for the movie but never transferred to DVD).

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