As every week, Télé-Loisirs offers you an audio recording program. This system consists of a voice-over that describes what is happening on the screen and allows the blind or partially sighted viewer to understand what is happening outside the dialogue. Depending on your box or the platform you use, you need to activate the audio description. As with subtitles with hearing impairment, surgery can be exhausting. Here are our recommendations for May 21-27.
