Owner’s Manual (0EMN01886) SPECIFICATIONS Possible Remedy You are watching a live broadcast and spelling errors made by the closed captioning production company may pass through uncorrected. A prerecorded program will not show any misspelled words because of the normal time available for editing the captions. My TV will not show the text in its entirety Captions that are delayed a few seconds behind the actual dialogue or there is a delay of what is being said. are common for live broadcasts. Most captioning production companies can display a dialogue to a maximum of 220 words per minute. If a dialogue exceeds that rate, selective editing is used to insure that the captions remain up-to-date with the current TV screen dialogue. My captions are scrambled with white boxes on the TV screen. Interference caused by building, power lines, thunderstorms, etc. may cause scrambled or incomplete captions to appear. My program guide listed a TV show as being closed captioned but none of the captions were displayed. Broadcasters may at times use a time compression process to the actual program so that additional advertising time can be given. Since the decoder cannot read the compressed information, captions will be lost. My prerecorded videotape does not show any captions. The tape box mentions it being closed captioned. The videotape was either an illegal copying or the tape duplicating company accidentally left out the captioning signals during the copying process.
