Voice Guide

Voice Guide enables the television to read on-screen text back to you and provides verbal feedback about the selected volume, current channel and programme information. It also reads aloud all the text displayed in the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). Voice Guide works for every menu on the TV, you can also adjust the pitch and tone of the Voice Guide to suit your preferences.

A speech bubble describes the current channel number indicated on the simulated TV display.

Audio Description

Audio Description (AD) is a service provided by many UK television programmes, whereby an additional audio track is broadcast which provides a verbal description of the scene to aid understanding.

A speech bubble describes the same landscape that appears on the simulated display.

High Contrast

Learn Remote
Control

Learn Remote Control is a new feature whereby the TV enters a teaching mode to help you get the most from your viewing experience. In this mode the TV assists you by telling you, each time you press a button on the remote control, what that button does. Through this feature visually impaired or blind users can quickly learn the location and operation of the buttons on their remote control without affecting normal TV operation.

Three remotes are shown on a simulated Learn TV Remote window. To the right, an illustrative guide shows how to use the buttons.

Learn Menu Screen
