ABC last week announced that it will begin a trial audio-description TV service in the middle of 2012. The trial will run for roughly 14 hours per week during prime-time viewing hours on ABC1. The trial will last for 13 weeks, starting on an as yet unspecified date.
The audio-description service will describe events, actions and characters involved in the scenes of dramas, documentaries and comedies. These descriptions will be broadcasted whenever participants in the TV program aren't speaking.
A compatible TV or set-top box is required to receive the "receiver-mixed" audio stream.
Once the trial is complete, the ABC will report back to the government about all aspects of the trial, including end-user feedback, programming acquisition and technical issues.
Seven continues to win the ratings with My Kitchen Rules every night that it's on. Jeez, people, watch something different for a change!
Airs: Seven, Monday-Thursday, 7.30pm AEDST
