Audio description

Information and advice about COVID-19 with audio description.

Latest update

New Zealand’s COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic lights) has ended. With case numbers low, most COVID-19 rules were removed on 13 September 2022. We will produce information with audio description as fast as possible.

About the changes

What is audio description?

An audio description adds an audio track to videos to describe essential information that is only presented visually on the screen.

Audio descriptions help people who:

  • are blind, vision-impaired or have low vision
  • cannot keep their eyes on the screen because they are doing something — for example, cooking
  • want help keeping track of details in the story.
