One of the biggest problems is trying to find tools, examples etc of described video online. The BBC iplayer has audio described programs, but one gets the sense that these are the same ones that would be described for tv anyway. It is hard to find online video- that is produced strictly for an online environment- which is also described.
BBC's Audio Description Category on the iplayer can be found at the following link:http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/categories/audiodescribed
