Hi John,
That makes perfect sense.
To put a finer point on it,
I think you want two things happening at once:
1 of 2: audio description user (e.g., John) hears the typical track + the
audio description track on bluetooth headset, while...
2 of 2: typical users (e.g., rest of John's family) hears the typical track
only, via the loudspeakers.
I am not aware if this has been done, however I'm thinking our friends at
AMI should know (and/or can "make it so").
Would you like me to query them on it?
