Music Videos for Visually Impaired PeopleAudio descriptions help blind and visually impaired people to experience the joy of Hollywood films. Visually impaired people can enjoy audio descriptions describing what is on the screen on major video-streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Interestingly, the same could not be said about music videos until now. Rappers Stoneface and William Cooper have a new single called “Silent Killa;” what’s more, the accompanying music video will include audio descriptions. It’s a significant accomplishment for Stoneface because he is blind. He lost his vision from sustaining a gunshot wound to the head. Hopefully, more artists will start making music videos for visually impaired people.
“For my entire career, I literally never knew what was actually happening in my music videos, or any music video,” said Stoneface. “It was no different than simply listening to the song’s audio while everyone else enjoyed what was being presented on the screen. You have absolutely no idea what this means to me. I have finally enjoyed a music video — 100 percent blind man has watched and enjoyed a music video, just listen to how that sounds. Truly amazing.”
