Not bad at all, though it’s indeed really funny how Indy doesn’t contribute anything to the plot. John Williams’ themes were of course great, but the rest of the score didn’t make any impression on me, except for a few notes here and there. Even Marion’s theme didn’t move me at times.

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard an Irish audio-describer. He also chose to describe lots and lots of things long before they happened, an approach I really liked because it leaves so much of the film sound untouched. And the sound mix was great too, even though the dialogue could have been a little louder.
