How to Provide Meaningful Descriptions

Description Key: http://www.descriptionkey.org/quality_description.html

  • Accurate: There must be no errors in word selection, pronunciation, diction, or enunciation.

  • Prioritized: Content essential to the intended learning and enjoyment outcomes is of primary importance.

  • Consistent: Both the description content and the voicing should match the style, tone, and pace of the program.

  • Appropriate: Consider the intended audience, be objective, and seek simplicity and succinctness.

  • Equal: Equal access requires that the meaning and intention of the program be conveyed.
