Hi John,
As has already been said, only "Man in the High Castle" seems to have AD on
the Fire stick in the UK.
To get it working:
1. start playing the episode you want,
2. press pause on the Fire's remote,
3. press the menu key twice in quick succession; the menu should open,
4. press the down button to get to the subtitle and language option,
5. press okay. You should then be on the language option.
6. again Press okay, and you should hear it tell you you are on the first of
two options.
7. press down to get to the audio description toggle, and press okay to
switch it on.
8. press back a couple of times to get out of the menu and you should hear
the film start with audio description.

Hope this helps.
Kind regards.

Hello One and All
After having a good old go at doing the double press of the menu button on
the Fire Stick I am getting nowhere.
Long pressing the menu button activates something called review mode which
sounds good but not so much help as the options it comes up with are not
clickable apparently.
I have an old ipad running 9.x and a Android phone running 6.x [for i am but
a poor blind developer]is it possible to get the much fabled audio
description on one of these?
If so how?
Many,many thanks
