> June 15, 2010
> In addition to the more than 30 narrated indoor attraction audio
> descriptions currently available for visually impaired theme park guests (or
> anyone in need of assistance), Disney has announced plans to unveil similar
> narrations for its outdoor theme park areas.
> Audio descriptions, provided via headsets, are designed to help guide guests
> who, for any reason, can't fully experience the visual aspect of visiting a
> Disney theme park. Using assistive technology audio description devices,
> guests can still hear ambient sounds but will also receive descriptions of
> scenery, props, and characters around them.
> Beginning soon, these audio descriptions will extend beyond indoor rides and
> shows and out into the streets of Disney's theme parks and will even offer
> audible versions of restaurant menus for those who can't read them.
