Closed caption function (some models)
or other objects. Changing the direction or
position of the antenna may improve reception.
Closed captioning is a process which converts the
audio portion of a television program into written
words, which then appear on the television screen
in a form similar to subtitles. Closed captions allow
viewers to read the dialogue and narration of
television programs.
Using Closed Captions
A
Captions are the subtitles of the dialogue and
narration of television programs. For prerecorded
programs, program dialogue can be arranged into
captions in advance. It's possible to caption a live
program by using a process called “real-time
captioning”, which creates captions instantly.
Real-time captioning is normally done by
professional reporters using a machine shorthand
system and computer for translation into English.
Captioning is an effective system for the hearingimpaired, and it can also aid in teaching language
skills.
• The picture as below shows a typical caption.
SNOW:
If your receiver is located at the weak, fringe
area of a TV signal, your picture may be marred
by small dots. It may be necessary to install a
special antenna to improve the picture.
2 An old, bad or illegally recorded tape is played.
3 Strong, random signals from a car or airplane
interfere with the TV signal.
4 The signal from the antenna is weak.
5 The program wasn't captioned when it was
produced, transmitted or taped.
Using the Text Function
Text services give a wide variety of information on
all kind of subjects (ex. captioned program lists,
weather forecasts, stock exchange topics, news
for hearing-impaired---) through the full TV screen.
But not all stations offer text services, even though
they might offer captioning.

Caption Tips
• Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption
signals.
• Sometimes TV stations broadcast two different
caption signals on the same channel. By
selecting MODE 1 or MODE 2, you can choose
which signal you view. MODE 1 is usually the
signal with the captions, while MODE 2 might
show demonstration or programming
information.
• Your TV might not receive caption signals
normally in the following situations.
Note: In the event you receive a poor signal, an
empty black box may appear and disappear, even
when the text mode is selected. This is normal
function in such an event.
