    Audio Description feature is one of Accessibility features from Android 13 and designed to turn on Audio Description across every app that supports it, and you can hear a description of what's happening on-screen in supported movies and shows. 

    To enable Audio Description. 

    1. Find and tap Settings and tap Accessibility
    2. Scroll down to the Audio section and tap the toggle switch for Audio Description

    Note: Not every app supports Audio Description (AD), and that it will only become active where the TV program, movie or video includes an AD track. Unlike Android’s Close Caption features, it can’t generate the AD track automatically.
