I'm currently looking into how #24098 could be fixed an found a way to determinate if a audio track has audio description or not. Now I'm wondering if there is a flag or so that could be set in the extractor to tell if this track has a audio description or not? So youtube-dl could let the user select it or not without this workaround via the Format option (as described in the related issue)

The problem is currently you have to manually find the best video/audio format without AD, but you don't even know what format has AD and what does not, because it doesn't tell you. So you have to try it manually several times until you find the right one. Now you have to manually set it. Maybe, if you do bulk downloads, the next video doesn't have this specific format so you start again finding the right format manually.

Now I'm thinking about a --enable-ad (or --diable-ad) CLI flag so youtube-dl could select the best format for you with your AD preference.

useful!
