Virgin Atlantic offers audio description on its in-flight entertainment


We all hate flying. Its crowded, its risky, and no telling what security is going to ask next. However, if you fly the international airline Virgin Atlantic, your flight has just gotten a little better. Following in the recent trend of adding audio description to mainstream content, Virgin Atlantic has just added audio description to their in-flight media.

Visually impaired passengers can request a tablet, at the time of this writing believed to be an IPad with VoiceOver, which comes pre-loaded with audio described movies and tv to help alleviate the boredom of a flight. If you try this, please feel free to sound off in the comments about how it works for you.
