How about "translation of spoken language and other audible
information..."? Signing a movie would have the same demands for
including non-spoken information as captioning does.

	sign language interpretation 

	translation of spoken words into a language that uses a
simultaneous combination of handshapes; orientation and movement of the
hands, arms or body; and facial expressions to convey meaning.
