Does your television program offer audio description?  This week Pete and Nancy find out from Comcast VP of Accessibility, Tom Wlodkowski.

Technology is changing rapidly and people who are visually impaired often feel they are being left behind. Articles in this program will bring you up to date on what the big tech companies are doing to make their products more accessible. You'll hear about Facebook, Netflix,

Apple and Sony among others.

In this program you will hear about audio description that is offered by museums and art galleries everywhere. You'll actually hear detailed audio guide descriptions of three works of art. It will be just like a mini trip to an art gallery.
