I've tried playing the latest episodes of both Eastenders and Shetland but have not been able to get audio description to play. I also tried the documentary on the attempted assassination of Adolf Hitler. There doesn't appear to be an audio description button in the player itself, which is really disappointing as the subtitles button is there. Yes I've turned that on just to make sure that audio description doesn't come on as well, but it doesn't. I've looked in the settings but can't find anything relevant to audio description. I've also tried doing a search using Google but couldn't find anything on how to actually turn on audio description, aside from using the category audio described, which I couldn't find in the App. Incidentally, and this has rather annoyed me as well, I can't find how to turn audio description on, but I was able to find a Q&A on how to turn it off.
