Audio Descriptions for Netflix Movies and TV Shows

Audio description is an optional narration that describes what is happening on-screen, including physical actions, facial expressions, costumes, settings and scene changes. Customers can enable audio narration just like choosing subtitles and alternate audio.

While audio descriptions are currently offered on a limited number of English-language titles, over time, we expect this feature to be available for major Netflix original series, as well as select other movies and TV shows in the near future. We are working with studios and other content owners to increase availability of audio descriptions across a range of devices including smart TVs, tablets, and smartphones.

Titles that currently have audio descriptions available can be found at netflix.com/browse/audio-description. Some TV shows may not have audio descriptions available for all seasons or episodes.

The following devices currently allow you to enable audio descriptions, with more to be added soon:

  • Android phones and tablets
  • iOS 8.0 or later iPhones and iPads running Netflix App version 7.1.4 or later
  • Apple TVs running system software 7.2 or later
  • Browsers on PCs or Macs
  • PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4
  • Xbox 360 and Xbox One
  • Roku 3
  • And many newer Smart TVs, Blu-ray players, and streaming media players

*To ensure your device has access to all available features, please make sure to download and install all available updates.
