KLM introduces films with audio description for blind and visually impaired passengers

KLM IFE for visually impaired
Ensures that blind and visually impaired passengers can enjoy films during their flight

KLM now offer films with audio description via its inflight entertainment system on intercontinental flights.

This will ensure that blind and visually impaired passengers can also enjoy films during their flight.

Audio description is a means of making films and television programmes accessible to blind and visually impaired people.

A narrator describes all the visual elements during breaks in dialogue. The narrator describes the characters, facial expressions, their location and plot developments.

The first films with audio description are: Home Again, Kingsman, The Golden Circle and Lego Ninjago Movie. More films will be added in the coming months.

The new service is available on all of KLM’s Boeing 777 and Boeing 787 aircraft.
