As more and more countries start to provide audio description services for a growing range of products and events, research into this new discipline is growing and diversifying as well. Two questions that seem to be at the heart of much of this research focus on what should be described and how this should be done, in other words on content selection and formulation of the description. The present article looks at the first of these two questions and approaches it from a narratological point of view. After a general discussion of the use of narratology for audio description, the focus will shift to one particular constituent of narrative, namely time. The different temporal aspects will be discussed in greater detail, after which a strategy for the audio description of time in film will be proposed.De plus en plus de pays commencent à offrir des services d’audio description pour un nombre croissant de produits et évènements. La recherche dans cette nouvelle discipline a de ce fait tendance à se développer et à se diversifier. Deux questions paraissent être au coeur de nombreuses recherches : que faut-il décrire et comment faut-il le faire ? Ou, en d’autres termes, quel contenu choisir et comment formuler la description ? Cet article se penche sur la première question et adopte une approche à partir narratologie à des fins d’audio description, l’accent sera mis sur un composant particulier de la narration: le temps. Les différents aspects temporels seront examinés plus en détails et une stratégie d’audio description du temps pour le cinéma sera proposée.
