Audio description on React Native

Videos should include audio description when important visual details are shown which you cannot hear. Audio description is an additional sound track which describes these important visual details. This allows people who are blind or have difficulty processing visual information to understand the content.

On React Native, the React-Native-Video package has support for switching audio tracks. This allows you to offer users a way to switch to an audio description track.

Note: The audio tracks must be encoded in the file, this is not something you add programmatically.

import Video from 'react-native-video';

        type: "audio-description",
        value: "en"
