YouDescribe is a free web-based tool from the Smith-Kettlewell VDRDC that allows anyone, anywhere to describe any YouTube video and share that description with the world. YouDescribe does not change or copy the original video, instead, it plays the original video from YouTube and synchronizes with your descriptions. This revolutionary new approach to description provides better access to YouTube videos for millions of blind and visually-impaired "viewers."
