« Why doesn't the audio match the video I'm watching on CBC Newsworld? | Main | What is "bold" TV »

A narrator is describing everything that is happening in the program. How do I make it stop?

What you are hearing is a Described Video soundtrack on CBC Television. DV allows vision-impaired Canadians greater access to CBC Television programming by describing the scene and action during pauses in dialogue. The DV soundtrack is delivered on Secondary Audio Program or SAP which is an audio setting on your Television. To turn off the narration, you need to have your television audio set with the SAP feature off and stereo sound on.

Turning SAP on and off is done on most television sets through a menu using the remote control. Every television set is different, so the best way to do that is to follow the instructions in your owner's manual.
