Many digital boxes have special access features such as subtitles, signing and audio description for people with hearing or sight problems.
Most programmes available on Freeview are subtitled and the service is constantly increasing.
To get subtitles, press the Subtitles button (may also be shown as SUB – check the user manual) on the remote control of your digital box or TV. Press the Menu button and then follow the on-screen options until you reach options for language and subtitles.
For more information on subtitling please call Action on Hearing Loss (formerly RNID) on 0808 808 0123 or visit the website at http://www.actiononhearingloss.org.uk/.
