Audio Description

Wavefront Centre provides audio described services.


Described Video Services

Our described video service (also known as “audio description”) takes content of a video to make it accessible to people who are low-vision and blind. Wavefront Centre mixes a secondary audio track around the source dialogue to verbally narrate important visual details – settings, critical plot actions, facial expressions, on-screen text, and more – so that seeing the screen is not necessary to still experience what’s taking place on it.


Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility is committed to create a barrier-free environment for our staff, clients and visitors. We acknowledge that our work takes place on the unceded homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility is the operating name for Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, a registered charitable organization. Charitable Registration Number #108200098RR0001
