a "Described Video" category, in which videos include a scripted voiceover that describes each scene in extensive detail.

That sounds like a fun job.

Snark aside.  I read the article, and they are making a conscious effort to make their site more accessible for the visually impaired.

Pornhub embracing accessibility matters more than you might think, and not just because of the titillating content. According to analytics service Alexa, Pornhub is the 38th largest site on the internet. More people visit it on a daily basis than do Ebay, or Imgur, or Wordpress. When web properties of that size act, it has an immediate, tangible impact for millions of people.

"Accessibility obviously is very important," says Danielsen. "We believe that all websites that are providing products or services to the public should use accessibility best practices."

Now, the world's largest porn site has done just that, with particularly challenging content. And with the upgrade, whatever excuses the rest of the web may have had not to do the same have officially faded from view.

Good for Pornhub
