Hulu Audio Described Titles

Jump to Titles. The following programs are AUDIO DESCRIBED IN ENGLISH on Hulu, which is only available in the USA.

LAST TITLE UPDATE:  May 19, 2019; count = 17 titles.  Additions to this list are generally posted on Twitter and Facebook.  The New date is the date added here during the last month, which may be later than Hulu added it.  Hulu began offering description on February 1, 2019, and we began this list in March.  If you have problems with any of the audio described titles on Hulu, please call their Customer Service desk at 888-631-4858.

To access audio description with Hulu ...

  • With a Desktop/Laptop browser at www.hulu.com, click the tool icon (a gear) in the lower left of the screen to bring up the Subtitles and Audio Menu by clicking the arrow icon on the right side of the tool menu, as shown below.
     Hulu Tools Menu  Subtitles and Audio Menu
    The default Audio option on the right side will most likely be English.  Select the next option down, if available:  English - Audio Description. NOTE:  If you use a browser on a SmartPhone, you will invoke the Hulu App to play the video, subject to the conditions outlined below.
     
  • Apple TV does not appear to support audio description yet.
  • The iPad App does not appear to support audio description yet.  If you use a browser on an iPad, it will still try to open the App.
  • The iPhone App does not appear to support audio description yet.  If you use a browser on an iPhone, it will still try to open the App.
  • The Android App ... well, we don't know, so please advise us!  However, we "assume" the support for AD is not available in the App yet.
  • NOTE!  You may be able to find out when the above Apps are supported by visiting the Hulu Release Notes page periodically.

Please note:  We have not yet evaluated how well Hulu works with screen readers.  Again, this information is very new, so check back later for updates.

History.  On October 17, 2018, we announced the following:

Hulu, with over 20 million streaming subscribers, and advocates from the American Council of the Blind and Bay State Council of the Blind have reached a settlement agreement to increase the accessibility of Hulu's streaming service to individuals who are blind or have low vision.  As a result, Hulu will undertake efforts to make its website and software applications accessible via screen readers and will provide audio description tracks for streaming content where possible.  Content and accessibility will begin to rollout sometime in 2019.  Read the Press Release

NOTE:  Additions are denoted with the New icon when we learn about them, and we will leave the "Added" notation up for a few weeks.  Because this is a new service, we solicit viewer help in advising us of new described titles!  Contact the Webmaster via the link below.
