Hi James

It does on the TV, but I can't vouch for apps as I haven't used them.

Kind regards,

Hi,

Does sky o provide AD?

Hi Steve

I take your point that perhaps accessing AD on a PC isn't going to be 
a priority for some, but I don't think we should be expected to carry 
an Android device for one thing, an iOS device to access another, and so on.
If the ITV Hub carries AD on the Android and Fire platforms, then why 
not on iOS and PC?  And as for Channel Five, that's a complete no-no.  
In the grand scheme of things it's not overly important, but I'm not 
alone in thinking it's about time these companies should be providing 
AD and accessibility across 'all' platforms.

Hi Jackie,

My own feeling on it is that all these companies are trying to move 
away from PC access and use phones and tablets instead.  So I don't 
think campaigning for PC use will get you anywhere, but that's my feeling.

For example, Seeing AI is on iOS, and not Android, but I'm not getting 
upset about it, it's the way of the world.  I use whatever method I 
have to hand to use it more easily, which is why in your case, I 
recommended the Polaris Mini.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve

I accessed the ITV Hub and an AD programme last night on my Polaris 
Mini so will indeed be taking it with me.  But it isn't going to deter 
me from putting pressure on these companies to deliver AD on all 
platforms.  I can't do much on my own so anyone who feels particularly 
frustrated should do likewise.  But instead of targeting ITV Hub 
directly, we need to try to influence bodies to campaign officially.

Kind regards,

Hi Jackie,

Silly question, but why not take your Polaris?  That will let you 
watch the ITV hub with audio description.  It's smaller than your 
laptop, and less for you to carry about.

All the best

Steve

Hi Yusuf

Yes looks like that's exactly right.  I checked iOS earlier and it is 
nowhere to be seen yet either.  It's shameful quite honestly! I've 
written to them a few times, along with many others, but clearly ITV 
doesn't think it is important enough.  In the grand scheme of things 
it isn't, but it would be nicer to follow a programme with AD included.

Kind regards,

Last time I checked Jackie, I couldn't figure out how to do this 
either and don't think it is currently possible. It appeared that the 
only way of watching catch up TV with audio description from ITV was 
to use the Android App.

Has anyone used the ITV Hub on a PC before and, if so, how you find 
programmes with Audio Description?  When I go away, I generally take 
my Amazon Fire tablet as the ITV Hub definitely carries AD.  But I was 
thinking of taking my laptop to cover everything I need instead, but 
haven't found anything on the ITV Hub online which points to AD.

Thanks for any pointers.

Kind regards,
