"Daredevil" Now Available to the Visually Impaired

Marvel's "Daredevil" dropped its entire first season on Netflix this past Friday, and now the subscription streaming service has made it possible for the visually impaired to enjoy the series about a blind lawyer-turned-vigilante.

Last Friday, CNBC first pointed out that "Daredevil" wasn't accompanied by an audio description service, ironically making it inaccessible to the blind and the visually impaired. Fortunately, Netflix was listening and announced today that they had launched an audio description program that will start with "Daredevil" and move on to their other original shows, including "House of Cards," "Orange is the New Black," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Marco Polo."

Here's how Netflix describes the new service: "Audio description is a narration track that describes what is happening on-screen, including physical actions, facial expressions, costumes, settings and scene changes. Customers can choose audio narration just like choosing the soundtrack in a different language."

"Daredevil," starring Charlie Cox in the title role, is currently available on Netflix.
