Intriguing. Do you have any idea how it syncs with the film? Could it
be used when watching non-AD films on the telly?

Subject: Greta - providing separate audio descriptions for movies, etc.
I can't install this app - think it's limited to only certain locations, not
including South Africa, but, thought might as well share anyway - see below.
GRETA whispers audio descriptions for a movie experience that is simply fun.
With GRETA you can finally simply experience the movies. Now you can watch
every film in every movie theater, at any time, by yourself or with friends.
We work on behalf of the respective distributors.
GRETA was specifically developed for blind and visually impaired people and
plays the spoken film description of your movie of choice simply from your
own smart device for you.
How it works:
Download GRETA free of charge. After you have successfully downloaded the
app, you can view the current movie releases every week that offer an audio
description. Select a movie of your choice and download the audio
description for free as well. The best and fastest way is to already do this
at home or any other WiFi network before visiting the movie theater.
Now you don’t have to do anything further besides activating the app at the
movie theatre and selecting the corresponding movie. It is really
easy: you simply press play on the desired movie title. GRETA takes care of
the rest and you can lean back and relax. GRETA automatically recognizes the
start of the film and then plays the audio description in sync with the
movie. That way, you can listen to the audio description with one ear and
dive into the full movie theatre sound with the other.
Please always switch your phone to flight mode while at the movies.
Of course you can pause GRETA at any time, the audio description always
automatically resumes at the right movie point. Sounds easy? It is!
Download GRETA for free and see for yourself! Experience movies for
everyone, it’s simply fun.
Special advantages of this app:
- Compatible as of Android 4.3
- You can autonomously and independently visit the movies on your own at any
time in any freely chosen place.
- You do not need anyone to accompany you nor anyone to whisper what is
happening on the screen.
- Simply download the app any time from the app store.
- Can be used at any movie theatre, in any auditorium, for any provided film
with an audio description
- Uncomplicated, simple operation
- Flawless, reliable functionality
- An integrated pause function allows you to interrupt the audio description
at any time.
- After that, select the SYNC function again and the audio description will
continue at the right spot in the movie.
- Of course you can also adjust the volume of the audio description.
- Security update:
In order to offer you an even more attractive movie selection with
international blockbusters, we kindly ask you to register one time.
- As a further security measure to optimally protect the sensitive movie
data, all data is encrypted when transmitted.
- Performance improvements
