Netflix backtracks on audio tracks after Daredevil snafu

by John_A

Netflix hit a nerve last weekend when its new series Daredevil, which follows the sightless crimefighter’s early rise, premiered without a descriptive audio track for blind viewers. As The Mary Sue reports, that irony did not sit well with viewers, many of whom took to Twitter or Change.org to voice their displeasure. In response, Netflix has announced that, starting today, Daredevil will feature an additional descriptive track selectable from the language options menu. What’s more, the streaming service will also be adding the tracks to other series including House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Marco Polo, which also prominently stars Tom Wu as blind martial arts prodigy “Hundred Eyes”, in the coming weeks.
