Audio description is an additional narration track that is added to a video primarily to serve the blind and visually impaired. It provides information about actions, scene changes, text-on-screen, and other visual content. Audio description is usually inserted into pauses in dialogue, and helps a person follow the content with comprehension to stay connected to your video more easily.
