Netflix Adds A New Feature For The Visually Impaired — Thanks To Daredevil!

Filed under: TV NewsComic BooksNetflix

no title

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!

George Michael's BRIT Awards' Mumbling Causes Concern

Filed under: Music MinuteGeorge MichaelAdeleHealthSick

George Michael didn't do so well during his BRIT Awards appearance and it's causing quite the stir!

The singer flubbed his lines while presented the Album of the Year award to Adele, and many speculated as to why his speech was impaired.

Some thought he was sick while others made light of the situation

A few even thought he was just plain drunk! We think George has a bit more class than that!

While his spokeswoman claims he was 100% sober, sources say that George is still feeling woozy from his illness and the jet lag from Australia through him for a loop.

We're willing to give George the benefit of the doubt.

Feel better, George!

Marlee Matlin helps deaf in uganda

Deaf Academy Award winning actress and current contestant on season 4 of Celebrity Apprentice, Marlee Matlin, flew to Uganda this past weekend to help others with a hearing disability.

She lent her hands to officials at the Starkey Hearing Foundation to fit aids to hearing-impaired African kids.

The charity, which the actress has been a long time supporter of, aims to fit 22,000 state-of-art hearing devices to children and adults across the continent in 24 days.

She said of her work with the foundation:

"I have been a friend and supporter of the Starkey Hearing Foundation for about eight years now and believe whole-heartedly in their work to bring the gift of hearing to those who would normally not have access to this level of hearing care, which is essential for one to realize their true and full potential."

Awesome job, Marlee! We love to see celebrities giving back to the world around them.

We're sure those kids and the foundation really appreciate your help. Keep up the good work!
