Let's Play videos are a popular trend where gamers will post videos of titles they're playing so others can watch and follow along. Now, a YouTube poster who calls himself Matt has started a new series of Let's Play videos which do the same thing, but with audio descriptions of the action. The Games for Everybody YouTube channel currently features several walkthroughs of his first title, Undertail, a role-playing video game nominated for several awards. Matt both describes the scenes that play out during the game and also reads text that appears.
Here's a short description from Wikipedia: "Players control a human child who has climbed a mountain and fallen into the Underground, a large, secluded region underneath the surface of the Earth, separated by a magic barrier. The human interacts with many monsters while on a quest to return to the surface, with the player making decisions on whether to kill or talk them out of the fight. Some of these decisions are made through the game's turn-based combat system, in which the player, after navigating through mini-bullet hell segments, can opt to talk or spare monsters instead of attacking and killing them. The choices made by the player affect the outcome of the game, with the dialogue and story outcome changing based on their decisions."

Hello. This is my first comment. As someone who is low vision and has played Undertale and beaten the Pacifist run, I think doing this is an excellent idea. I have several friends who are blind and watch LP videos, but often don't know what's going on, so they have to get a sighted person to describe what's going on. I think that doing this gives them an idea on what this game is like, if it were made accessible.
