WXXI TV - Described Television Programs

DVI Descriptive Television ProgramsAs a further service to Rochester's visually impaired community, WXXI television offers a large number of its programs with descriptive video (DVi). These programs are noted with a D))) in the listings below. Programs with descriptive video provide concise descriptions of sets, scenery, costumes, action and other important visual elements between the dialogue of the program.

With the transition to digital television, the SAP channel is no longer used to transmit audio descriptions.  Instead, digital television standards provide for two types of main audio, and six types of associated audio services, one of which is for people with vision disabilities.  In order to access DVi programs in the digital world, you will need to have either a digital television with additional associated audio services or a converter box with enough associated audio services.  As long as you are equipped with one of these two options, any program that contains DVi/audio description, the description will be heard along with all of the regular program audio. For more information on how to access DVi programs, call WXXI at 325-7500.
