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 program information. It also reads aloud all the text displayed in the Electronic Program 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.
A speech bubble describes the same landscape that appears on the simulated display.

Audio Description

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

High Contrast

High Contrast mode configures the TV to display all menus with an opaque black background and a white or yellow font. This provides you with maximum contrast and visibility of the text, and is extremely useful if you have any form of visual impairment.

A menu screen with the High Contrast feature enabled is shown.
A menu screen with the Enlarge feature enabled is shown.

Enlarge

Enlarge enables you to see important text on the screen with a larger or zoomed-in effect.

Learn Remote
Control

Learn Remote Control is a new feature where the TV enters a teaching mode to help you get the most from your viewing experience. In this mode the TV will tell you what each button does after you press it. 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.
The Accessibility Guidance button is highlighted on the e-Manual screen.

Learn Menu Screen

Learn the menus on the TV screen. Once enabled, your TV will tell you the structure and features of the menus you select.

Grayscale

You can change the color of the TV screen to a black and white tone to sharpen blurred edges caused by colors.

A black and white tone is applied to both the open Picture settings window and the TV program being played on a simulated display.
A menu screen is displayed with inverted colors allowing you to more easily read the text.

Color Inversion

You can invert the colors of the text and background displayed on the TV screen to make it easier to read them.

See Colors

The Multi-output Audio function is highlighted in the Accessibility Shortcut screen.

Multi-output Audio  

Multi-output Audio gives you the flexibility to configure the television audio output when Bluetooth headphones are connected to the TV. You can choose to have audio directed to multiple devices with independent volume control. If one member of your family has hearing difficulties and needs to listen through their own headphones, Multi-output Audio facilitates this without automatically disabling the audio from the TV speakers.

Subtitle

Subtitles are provided for almost all US TV programs. Dialogue is visually displayed as text on the TV screen.

Subtitles for a TV program are shown over a simulated display.

A live news broadcast is being played on a TV. The news broadcast is being translated by a sign language interpreter. The on-screen interpreter window has been automatically enlarged so the interpreter can be seen more clearly for viewers.

Sign Language Zoom

Sign Language Zoom automatically recognizes and enlarges the sign language area for the hearing-impaired. You can specify a sign language area and adjust the magnification. Visually impaired viewers can also use this function to zoom in on a specific area.

Remote Button Repeat Settings

Press and hold one button on the remote control to perform a continuous operation, like a scroll, while lowering the speed. This is useful for slowing down the continuous operation of channel/volume, or for slowing down the movement of items in a horizontal or vertical list.

The Remote Button Repeat Settings window is open on a simulated TV display that's playing a TV show. Slow Button Repeat may be toggled on or off through the menu. Repeat intervals can be adjusted in the sub menu.
