As every week, Télé-Loisirs offers you a program guide in audio description. This system consists of a voice-over describing the events taking place on the screen and allowing a blind or visually impaired viewer to understand what is going on outside of the dialogue. Depending on your box or the platform you are using, you must enable the audio description. As with subtitles for the hard of hearing, the operation can be tedious. Here are our recommendations from March 26 to April 1.
