How to turn off Audio Description?

Published on 2018-09-06


Next to the regular audiotrack, a voice describes the events that are taking place on the screen. This function is called ‘Audio Description’ and is meant for visually impaired persons.


Ensure that:

• The channels are installed directly onto the television and the ‘audio description’ is not coming from an external device, like a set-top box.


To turn off the Audio Description option press the “Home” button on the remote control of the television and select:

[Settings/Quick settings] > [Universal Access] > [Universal Access] > [OFF]


[Settings] > [Accessibility] > [Audio description] > [OFF]

The information on this page applies to the following models: 55PUS8602/12 , 55POS9002/12 .
