A comparative study of audio description guidelines prevalent in different countries
Year of publication
In 2010, the RNIB has conducted a Comparative Study of Audio Description Guidelines Prevalent in Different Countries that revealed that the existing standards developed in each country are not very different from each other with only a few minor differences. Aside from the UK, a number of countries such as Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Belgium and Greece also rolled out their guidelines/ standards/ codes for the production of Audio Description in their countries. The most comprehensive set of instructions for audio describers is the Guidance on Standards for Audio Description developed by the Independent Television Commission (ITC), the body that controls commercial TV broadcasting in the United Kingdom (UK).
