Make audio description available on ALL films, TV programmes and streaming services

Hi everyone,

I’ve launched a petition to get audio description available on ALL films, TV programmes and streaming services. - https://www.change.org/p/make-audio-description-available-on-all-films-tv-programmes-and-streaming-services

I find it frustrating that blind/VI people only have limited access to a number of films and TV shows, which I believe to be unfair and discriminating. 

I understand it could be a long process in achieving this goal but we can all start by signing this petition and raising awareness.

If you haven’t done so I would really appreciate it if you could sign this petition then share on your blog, social media platforms and friends and family.

The more signatures we get, the more likely film and TV indutries will listen and take action.

Kind regards
