Booking for the theatre? - Ask about Touch Tours

There is often a Touch Tour available before an audio-described performance, when users of the service can explore the stage sets and handle costumes and props. Members of the production team are on hand to give insights into the production process. Many sighted patrons would love to have this opportunity. Don't forget to ask when you book whether there is a Touch Tour available. Often it is not possible to advertise these Touch Tours in advance in this Diary because the theatres don't know till the touring company arrives whether they can accommodate a Touch Tour. So ask when you book, or at the beginning of the performance week.

Are you getting your audio tapes?

For some years now Scottish Opera, with the support of Playback, Glasgow, has been producing pre-performance tapes for visually impaired users of the audio-description service. This is a wonderful service, unique to Scottish Opera. Each tape contains a synopsis of the action of the opera, a description of the stage sets and the costumes worn by the cast, a very informative talk by a senior member of the Music Department, about points to listen for in the music, and an interview with the producer.

Some users of the service may not know about these tapes, which are sent out free by Scottish Opera for audio-described performances in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness

Order your tape when you book your seat and headset. These tapes are only available to the visually impaired.

Can't get to the Cinema? What about an audio-described DVD or video?

AUDIO DESCRIBED FILMS ON DVD AND VIDEO.

DVDs with audio description are available from wherever you get DVDs - Blockbuster, HMV, etc. Below is a list of films we have been made aware of by the R.N.I.B. We have not tested every one, but have been reliably informed that they have audio description. The a.d. track is just another of the eight available audio tracks on DVD. Some of these tracks are commonly used for director / cast commentaries. Pressing the 'audio' button on the DVD remote control selects the available audio tracks.


A full list of over 200 audio described DVDs on this website:

Some DVDs are available in different versions. If you have a REGION FREE DVD player you may be able to play some U.S. (region one) versions of Miami Vice (2006), Inside Man, United 93, Road to Perdition, The Grinch, Terminator 2 and Basic Instinct, and some Australian (region four) versions of Dead Poets Society, Hotel Rwanda, Pulp Fiction, Road to Perdition, Santa Clause 2, Spanglish, Stage Beauty.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Some U.K. DVD versions, such as special releases, or certain 'rental' versions DON'T have the a.d. track, so double check before you purchase or rent!

Audio description is also available on video cassettes. The original soundtrack is replaced with an audio described track. Many libraries stock them. Over seventy video titles are now available including Insomnia, Billy Elliott, Calendar Girls, Chocolat, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban, Lord of the Rings, Shipping News, The Emperor's New Groove, The Matrix, and many more.

To receive a Home Video Catalogue of all the available titles or to order a video, please contact RNIB Customer Services, or telephone 0845 702 3153 or email cservices@rnib.org.uk.

You can view titles on the RNIB site:


TV listings including SKY TV updated:

I have been greatly helped by Clive Miller of RNIB who produces a day by day listing for all terrestrial channels. The link to his listing, which is much more accessible than mine for the partially sighted, has been revised, as follows: TV Help Audio Description. Clive has now produced new listings of ALL the Audio described programs you can get on a SKY digibox. I strongly recommend a visit to the site.

Freeview: BBC, ITV, FIVE, etc

The details are on the TV listings page.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Don't forget to check whether your area can receive Freeview before spending any money! (mine can't). Go to the Freeview web site.
And if you can't get Freeview directly, you can get it by satellite with a Sky subscription.
