Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Is audio description provided by museum staff or is it a profession like sign language interpreters?

Providing effective audio description is a technical skill that is being learned by professional audio describers in many cities. It began in towns where patrons with vision loss wanted to attend live theater; but now Describers are also working in museums and on guided tours.  If you want to know who provides audio description in your area, contact your local ADA Center at 1-800-949-4232.
