What do blind people experience when they watch a movie? 7 yr old girl "Emily's Oz" describes her "Wizard of Oz"

Comcast launched a campaign in the 2015 Oscars called “Emily’s Oz,” featuring a remarkable little girl named Emily, who has been blind since birth. They tell the story of what Emily “sees” when she watches her favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz, and how XFINITY’s new X1 Talking Guide is helping people like her find and enjoy their favorite movies and TV shows independently.

The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is honoring the '2015 Corporate Leadership Award' to Comcast NBCUniversal on March 11th, 2015 at AAPD 2015 Leadership Awards Gala in Washington, DC.

Below are 2 videos, the First is the making of "Emily's OZ", the second is the Comcast "Emily's Oz" commercial, both are audio described. (Youtube published by Xfinity).

Below is the commercial "Emily's Oz" as it premiered during the 2015 Oscar telecast.
