Philomena Audio Described With the New Phone AP
Audio description has moved to the next level. Visit the link below for more information.
You can download the AP called MovieReading from the AP store. Then you download the movie track, at this point there is only one movie and it is Philomena
. The movie, itself is really great and the audio description is amazing.
I downloaded the AP to my I Phone and then downloaded the movie before we left for the theater. You can go to any theater. Once you have made it through the endless commercials that now start every movie, and the film begins, you make sure your phone is in airplane mode and go into the AP and find the film title. It might take a few seconds for things to sink and you might need to tap the sink button but before you know it you have audio description that is perfectly timed to the movie. It does this through signals that are received through the microphone on your phone. I never had to touch anything again.
This is a great movie and worth seeing. Imagine that you can go to any theater. You can use any I Phone. If you don’t have one, go to the movie with someone who does and you might need to buy a new phone. You need phone software that is version 6 or above and soon there will be an Android version.
I did not have to ask for a separate device that no one in the theater ever understands. I did not have to worry about having dead batteries. I just took my phone out of my pocket and in seconds I was enjoying the movie.
I am assuming I can keep checking the AP and know when new movies are out. I also assume this will work with the DVD version of the movie but I am not sure of that.
