The Canadian Federation Of The Blind (CFB) this week launched a six-month study on the quality and availability of descriptive video service in Canadian Movie Theatres.

They’re asking blind theatre-goers who request DV (Descriptive Video) equipment at your theatre to visit: http://www.cfb.ca/blindside/?p=590 and fill out the form to share your experience. The form can be filled out multiple times, and they encourage participants to leave feedback for multiple movies if you have it.

They plan to use the feedback to interest theatres in providing more DV (Descriptive Video) and raise the quality of the equipment that is available but also to highlight areas or theatres who do descriptive video better to inform the blind public.

There’s also an opportunity to win movie passes with your participation!

The Canadian Federation Of The Blind is an organization entirely comprised of blind people working to change what it means to be blind in Canada through training, advocacy, and research by the blind for the blind. To learn more about the Canadian Federation Of The Blind, visit: http://www.cfb.ca
