Rubberdog, it seems to be something the government does now. Seems a lot of countries are doing it and every time the PM or the federal health minister has had a press conference they have had the person in the background doing sign language
I have a feeling my check liver light may come on this weekend

Its getting OTT , every single PC any where and every where is having one now, totally uncalled for, all they need to do is put subtitles up which would be more useful for a lot more people, most people with hearing problems cant read sign , infact only about 20,000 people in Australia can.

Agree entirely, PC gone too far again. If it’s an important announcement, which these are, then subtitles should be used.

Not sure of others, but I've sometimes noticed captions at the bottom of the screen are sometimes slow. They usually appear at the base of the screen and don't always correspond with what is being said. The captions could be anywhere from 2 seconds to 5 seconds behind the spoken word. Whereas the sign language would be conveying words immediately.

Nup never noticed that, my hearing is not the best and I find captions excellent.

What happened to Teletext? That was probably the first introduced technology you could call it "smart technology" that I think was only abandoned not long ago if I recall amid some controversy.

I've got a Samsung UHD 4K Smart TV and a Panasonic PVR. I don't know of any options to display teletext. Yet pretty sure any DVD or Blueray movie has subtitles as an option.

All News programs should have a subtitles option.

Where is that option Baz?
Pretty sure when I've been waiting at a dealership while my car is being serviced some of them display text across the bottom of the screen.

Ahh found it.

Sadly the old teletext option has now been resigned to history. Australian tv stations dropped it many years ago. Because of "cost" reasons.
