Described Video Collection

Described videos are current feature films, television programs and educational programming made accessible to people who have visual handicaps by providing descriptive narration of key visual elements. Actions, costumes, gestures and scene changes are just a few of the elements that when described (narrated in-between dialogue), engage the viewer with the story. In 1995, the Library of Michigan Foundation funded the first collection of audio described materials for library patrons of what is now known as the Braille and Talking Book Library (BTBL). Each succeeding year, the Library of Michigan has supported the expansion of that collection.

The library has descriptive videos in two formats; VHS tapes and DVDs. We are no longer expanding the collection of VHS tapes (ET) as that media is no longer commonly used. However, we still circulate the VHS tapes that have been collected over the years; view VHS selections here. The library is committed to expanding the DVD collection.

Browse below for a quick list of DVD options or view this expanded DVD list that includes short descriptions of each movie for your convenience. Then just call the library to order or print this DVD Order Form and return to the library via mail, email, or fax.
