Today Amazon’s Prime Video announced a new accessibility feature that will make it easier for you to hear the dialogue in your favorite movies and TV shows.
Starting today, Amazon is rolling out a feature called Dialogue Boost that will make it easier to hear what people say. This new feature will make dialogue louder to help people with hard hearing better understand what they are watching.
“At Prime Video, we are committed to building an inclusive, equitable, and enjoyable streaming experience for all our customers,” said Raf Soltanovich, VP of Technology at Prime Video and Amazon Studios. “Our library of captioned and audio described content continues to grow, and by leveraging our technological capabilities to create industry-first innovations like Dialogue Boost, we are taking another step to create a more accessible streaming experience.”
How to find Dialogue Boost
During playback, customers can view and choose which level of Dialogue Boost they would like to use via the audio and subtitles drop down menu. The audio tracks are labeled “English Dialogue Boost: Medium” and “English Dialogue Boost: High.” The detail page for a title will indicate whether Dialogue Boost is available.
Amazon says Dialogue Boost on select Amazon Originals, including “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and Harlem, as well as movies including The Big Sick, Beautiful Boy, and Being the Ricardos. The feature will become available on additional titles this year.
