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 translations.
All VCRs record the closed caption signal from television programs, so home-recorded video
tapes also provide closed captions. Most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed
captions as well. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television schedule and on the
tape' s packaging:

Misspellings and unusual
Caption
characters sometimes occur during
closed caption transmissions, especially
those of live events. There may be a
small delay before captions appear when
you change channels. These are not
malfunctions of the TV.
Return
In "Caption" mode, captions appear
Caption
at the bottom of the screen, and they usu-
ally 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.

subtitles in English, while Channel 2 has
subtitles in Spanish.)
