Viewing Closed Captions
Your TV decodes and displays the closed captions that are broadcast with certain TV shows.
These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing impaired or foreign-language trans-
lations. All VCRs record the closed caption signal from television programs, so home-record-
ed video tapes also provide closed captions. Most pre-recorded commercial video tapes pro-
vide closed captions as well. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television schedule

Misspellings and unusual
characters sometimes occur during
closed caption transmissions, especial-
ly those of live events. There may be a
small delay before captions appear
when you change channels. These are
not malfunctions of the TV.
In caption mode, captions
appear at the bottom of the screen,
and they usually cover only a small
portion of the picture.
In text mode, information unrelated
to the program, such as news or
weather, is displayed. Text often
covers a large portion of the screen.
Different channels and fields
display different information: Field 2
carries additional information that
supplements the information in
Field 1. (For example, Channel 1
may have subtitles in English, while
Channel 2 has subtitles in Spanish.)
