Fox airing second channel of audio

Posted:

WFLX has begun airing a second channel of audio.

Fox has provided us with Spanish and descriptive audio on this second audio channel, and we have chosen to pass this on to viewers.

Descriptive audio often has normal English program content and a verbal description of what is happening on the screen, for viewers who have vision difficulties. For example, you'll hear, "Tom walks to the right side of the room. He stops and picks up a book from the table."

Often found as SAP (Second Audio Program) on televisions, it is also known as MTS (Multiple Television Sound). Remote control buttons for the television are labeled SAP, MTS, audio  sound or language.

On most remotes, you simply push the button several times to step through "SAP, Mono" and "Stereo" until you have the desired selection. Stereo would be selected for English.

Other televisions that do not have these buttons on the remote, allow you to select the audio language, in the menu setting of the television.

On the silver Comcast remote, pushing "Menu" once, brings up the quick menu, "arrow up" once highlights "disable SAP" and pressing "ok" will turn this feature off.

On the Black, Comcast remote, there is a "Language" button. Pushing that will step through SAP, Mono and Stereo.

We're sorry if this has caused any inconvenience. Our intent was only to provide an additional service for our viewers.

Thank you for your understanding.
