Hi all,

As far as I know, the only DVD which talks as soon as you put it in the
player is the Dr Who dVD's, which came out I think around four years ago.

Don't know of any other, which talk from the point of putting the DVD in the
player.

Shame more DVD's didn't have this facility.

I only have a small number of DVD's but am not sure how many of them have
audio description.

Paul.

: Hi Sandra,
:
: Its ok having AD on a DVD disk but in the ideal world (which we have
never,
: and probably will ever live in) we would need a DVD player that reads out
: the menus on the disks.
:
: If they can put in a speech chip into a Sat Nav to read maps for drivers
: then it can't be too much of a leap to incorporate that kind of technology
: into DVD or Blue Ray players.

: Hello,
: Audio Description needs to be activated via a set of menues on the DVD
: itself. You need a sighted person to do this for you. Most of the time
: a DVD can only be played with sighted help. I never buy DVDs anymore
: because videos were the best. You used to simply put them into the
: machine, pressed play and they would play. At least companies never
: did this to CDs.
:
: Very best wishes,
: Sandra.
