Your TV can decode that information
and display it on the TV screen.
Closed captioning was initially designed so that those with hearing
difficulties could more fully enjoy viewing television. However,
closed captioning can also be used in other way% such as:
• helping children learn to read.
• learning a foreign language
• using the television without disturbing
There are two types of captioning

shown. Standard
captioning
usually follows the dialogue of tlhe
characters

Text captioning
often contains information such as weather or
news. Text captioning blocks out your view of the program you are
watching.
Your TV can decode four different standard
captioning
signals and
four different text captioning signals from each 'IW station. However, each station may be broadcasting
only one or two captioning
signals, or none at all.

that you
can't hear during normal TV viewing. An S.A.P. signal might be
