Described Video Service (DVS)

Wightman offers access to Described Video Service (DVS) programming, where it is available from the broadcaster. Described Video is the narrated description of a program's non-verbal elements that may include surroundings, costumes, and body language. The description is added during pauses in dialogue and enables people to form a mental picture of what is happening in the program.
