Audio-visual contents are made accessible to blind individuals with added videodeseription (VD) that translate the visual information into auditory information. We interviewed ten legally blind individuals (with and without residual vision) to monitor the quantity and frequency of infonnation needed in YD. It was found that residual vision and the complexity of the content have a significant impact of the level of VD needed. This suggests that a tool for the dissemination of VD must provide a basic level of information and also offer enough flexibility to confirm some information on demand.
