I am so happy for this SW release! Being completely blind, it really Means alot to me that the author of this release did actually take the time to include the original WGBH descriptive audio for blind people!!
I was on this forum a long time ago originally whare I was looking for described versions of all 3 films, and over the years, I managed to find them and also did update a thred about it regularly. Unfortunatlly only the original EP 4 has description, and I believe some members onhere also did wanted to have a listen to it at that time, so, I am very delighted to see the description actually appearing in a release!
One big question though, can anyone tell me why the reading of all of the end-credits are missing? Given that the release otherwise is so perfect in any way (also with the many audio tracks to choose from , I love it and wish there were more), I am a bit pusseld as to why this last bit of the description track has not been included?
All the best from Allan
Not quite sure, but there are some problems with the descriptive audio tracks as we have them, and it’s quite possible the credits were missing and then tacked on from an alternate source. Empire and Jedi are much worse off because the only descriptive tracks we have are Special Edition tracks, and also the quality isn’t so great.
If you’re interested, I’m actually trying to completely remake the descriptive audio tracks, by finding someone to read the voiceover. Then I’ll mix the voiceover with one of our much-better quality audio tracks so you can get the full Star Wars audio experience. I have scripts, I just need the voice talent.
So not necessarily you, but if you know anyone who’d be interested in helping out here, I’m willing to do all the editing, I just need the raw voice recordings. PM me if you’re interested.

EDIT: Oh, and ironically, I don’t actually have scripts for the complete credits, just the major initial parts. We can address that when it comes to that point.
