Netflix must be pretty pleased with the success of their latest show Daredevil! But not everyone got to watch the blind superhero kick serious butt!
Many fans were outraged when they found out that the show did not have audio description for the visually impaired!
Audio description — a track that narrates action, facial expressions, costumes, etc — is a feature Netflix has for movies and television shows, but for their original programming!
And the disgruntled fans let their voices be heard loud enough to hurt Matt Murdock's super-hearing ears!
A petition called "Netflix: Make your new show about a blind superhero accessible to blind viewers" gathered thousands of signatures!
Well, we guess Netflix heard the complaints because on Tuesday they announced plans to add audio description feature for all of its original shows — starting with Daredevil!
Bravo, Netflix! Daredevil saves the day again!
