Took my son to Best Buy today to exchange a 3D movie his Nanny got him for Christmas. He ended up picking out two different movies. When we were waiting to check out, I found myself looking at the containers to see whether they contained descriptions for people with visual-impairments.
Why is closed-captioning for people with deafness standard on nearly every DVD, Blu-ray, etc? Why isn’t descriptive narrative standard, as well? It’s such a shame that such a large portion of the population is left out. As people age, they lose their eyesight, not their interest in movies. Why doesn’t Hollywood understand this?
