If it's a local station, call them and ask what service provides their closed captioning, and get the contact information for them. Call that service and ask how your patrons with good spelling might apply to work for the captioning service (either as a volunteer or paid position). I am sure it is a challenging job and they could probably use all the help they can get!

(Watch the closed captioning for a breaking news event -- the person at the service who is typing the words is having to transcribe what is being said as it is spoken. That surely is the most challenging job they have!)

Yes - perhaps yoga, or a nice massage. You have some seriously uptight members!! It is either a computer error in translating a word from speech, or a human mistyping a word.... but it's all at the broadcast end, you really have no control over it. Try looking up "closed captioning" on Wikipedia.... and relax, the world is not perfect :)

Closed captioning is done by someone typing in the words. If the words are wrong, they spelled them wrong. There is no voice to text technology involved. Even on CD's, there is closed captioning available where the speech is garbled but it is actually words.

There is a black box in the center of my tv


I would suspect your closed caption settings are set to text and there is no text available on the channel . I would figue out how to navigate the tv menu to cc or closed caption settings and set it to off. Sometimes there will be a cc.. or closed caption button on the tv remote to change those setting directly.

Black box fills most of screen on certain channels


THE cc key on your remote control might of been pressed by accident and the close caption was enabled, to correct this all you need to do is press the cc key repeatedly untill the c.c. is turned off, the tv display will go through cc1, cc2, txt1 etc. untill you get to the part that says cc off.

My TV suddenly has a big black rectangle in the lower center part of the screen, that dissapears only for a few seconds when pressing any button. How can I remove it?


Sounds like your Closed Caption has gotten turned on. Try this solution...

1) Press the MENU button
2) Use the CHANNEL UP/DOWN to scroll to CLOSED CAPTION
3) Use the VOLUME UP/DOWN to until MODE is OFF
4) Use the CHANNEL UP/DOWN to scroll to FINISH
5) Use the VOLUME UP to save and exit.

This should make the box go away.

Good Luck.....

Black box appears in middle of screen


go into the menu and look at the closed caption option----if TEXT is highlighted--this is your problem---select CC! or if it has it OFF.The TEXT will only appear on certain channels and it most likely was activated by someone changing the closed caption options. If this has been helpful give me a vote to let me know.

I have a black rectangle covering the center of the screen from top to bottom. How do I get rid of it? I tried the menu for Closed Captioning but it did not seem to work.


Try turning off the closed caption and text also check v chip, if you have a channel or channels blocked it could cause a black rectangle to pull up on the screen, if that doesn't work try resetting the unit to factory settings

Go into your customer menu to closed caption and turn off the "text" mode... What you're seeing is a text box from closed caption but unless you have that additional service it will just me a black square...
