Hi, This app sounds fantastic. Do you plan on having it available in the U.S. app store, and if so, when? Thanks.

Just an FYI for other users. From what I have gather in reading from the web site. This was designed for Canadians only. The service is provided by Canada for their citizens only. So, getting this elsewhere would be highly unlikely but what a great app to get otherwise.

Sorry. Since your asking about U.S availibility it's probaly Canada only. They have a AMI-audio aswell you can listen here obviously it's Canadian base but anybody can still get usefull info and appreciate it. Hopefully it's not GEOblocked.

I am afraid that it is pretty much Canada only. It actually started off as a channel on your TV provider that you could tune in and listen to various content with Described Video. I actually heard about the app at an accessibility conference I spoke at in Montreal where representatives from AMI were present speaking about the service and they mentioned the mobile app. I haven't had much time to look at it but at first glance, it seems fully accessible and is definitely an app I plan on keeping for the forseeable future.

We need full access to all apps like this one. All movies, shows, specials etc... should already have it. I’m tired of the lack of support for the blind community and content. When will people listen? We matter too!!!!!

It seems that now, this app is available in the US. As I was able to download it and install it and listen to a video.
