Back in the day, GARY WUNDER had no problem understanding television thanks to the way TV shows were produced. He says, "When Gilligan's Island was on and...somebody got popped on the head, you knew that it was Gilligan and the Skipper was giving him a hard time." Today's programming tends to lean more on special effects to tell stories, and so something called 'Descriptive Video Service' is available to help those who are sight-impaired enjoy online and over-the-air entertainment.
