LAST TITLE UPDATE: Jan 15, 2020; count = 1657 titles. In 2019, this number increased at the rate of 99 per month! In the second half of 2019, the monthly increase averaged 187 titles! The date is the date added here during the past week, which may be slightly after Prime Video added it. NOTES: (1) For series, not all seasons are necessarily described. (2) "Theatrical" after a title means a movie is identical to one shown in theaters (as opposed to having "Bonus Features" for example). If nothing is specified in parentheses, then you can assume it's the Theatrical version.
Audio Description of Amazon Prime Video movies and TV series is provided as an additional language track, just like it is on DVDs. When using a browser, click any title link below to go to the detail page of the movie or TV show you would like to watch and click on Watch Now or click an episode Play button . To activate description the first time requires sight, as you must move the cursor onto the screen, move it to the top right, click on the Subtitles and Audio menu, and choose English Audio Description as the language from the Audio menu. Once you make this language choice, it will persist to the next movie which has the option on the same device. You can start a movie on one device and switch to another, but both devices must have enabled description.
Listed titles may be watched on many devices. Look for "Supported Devices" on this Prime Video Help page, then look for "Audio Description: Yes" under your device. Note that Roku does not support description on Prime Video at this time. iOS and Android users must install the free Prime Video app. Using iOS and Voiceover, double-tap the screen and swipe until you reach the Audio menu. Android users would use TalkBack. On Apple TV, swipe down, then twice to the right to get to the Audio menu; and note that at the present time, description is the first English choice, unmarked, subject to change. Sighted assistance may be required the first time, but your choice will be remembered for each device.
Fees: Original Amazon-produced series and some movies are free for Prime members (denoted as Included with Prime here and online). Other titles can generally be rented or purchased, though some are purchase-only. In a few cases, due to licensing issues, movies on this list that are denoted "Included with Prime" online will not have AD in the free streaming version, but will have AD if you rent or purchase them.
