Audio description. Boosting conversation to get audio contrast against  
background music/sound effects.

Also, the way that a lot of countries do dubbing even for television and  
movies, where they shift the volume of the original track to get important  
sound effects, but just speak over the top of it to dub the conversation.  
If you can't get a conversation track seperated from the sound effects  
track, that's a practical low-cost solution.
