This study analyses the use of audio description in teaching physics concepts, aiming to determine the variables that influence the understanding of the concept. One education resource was audio described. For make the audio description the screen was freezing. The video with and without audio description should be presented to students, so that the potential of each video could be tested. The sequence of presentation of the videos was alternated to ensure better analysis. The proposal was tested in three moments: first with a group of 14 people who were blind or had low vision. In a second step, the video with audio description was tested with a group of adult education that had a student with low vision included. The third time, the video was used with students of the second year of high school; none of the students of this stage had visual impairment. The results show that audio description made in times when the screen is frozen can be a solution to make audio description of videos ready.
