This petition made change with 41 supporters!


Netflix has released a new Marvel TV Show called Daredevil, following the adventures of Matt Murdock, a blind man who, by day is an up and coming lawyer, but, thanks to his other heightened senses,  he also takes to the night becomes a masked vigilante soon to be known as Daredevil. The show is wonderful and has received rave reviews. However, Daredevil has been a hero for the blind as well, including 25-year-old Robert Kingett. Kingett, among others including NYC comic creator Rich Bernatovech, want Netflix to include audio descriptions to make the show accessible to the blind. Other stations, such as PBS and Turner Movie Classics provide this option, as well as DVDs from companies such as Disney. Netflix has stated "We are working hard to provide great entertainment to all our members, including the hearing and visually disabled. We don't have any further updates to share at this time.", which sounds as though it is not a priority. This petition is to show them that we, the fans, want this to be priority and that Daredevil should be accessible to the blind and sooner than later.
