Massive streaming service HBO Max has added a key accessibility feature for blind and visually impaired users. Helping them enjoy the same content as everyone else.
The service now offers audio descriptions for content, which describes what is happening on the screen beyond the dialog and sound effects. This feature is joined by multiple other changes intended to improve accessibility.
WarnerMedia agreed to add accessibility for low-vision and blind users back in October. In the first rollout of features under this plan, the company is adding around 1,500 hours of audio descriptions for select content. Including some third-party content, HBO originals, HBO Max originals, and Warner Bros movies.
In addition to the audio descriptions, HBO Max is also rolling out. A prominently featured Audio Description category in the navigation menu so that users can rapidly access this media.
