Descriptive Video Service on WITF TV

Written by Fred Vigeant, Director of Programming and Promotions for TV and Radio | Apr 13, 2015 4:36 PM

WITF offers Descriptive Video Service via the second audio channel on your television or cable box. Descriptive Video Service is the narration of visual elements for blind or visually impaired individuals. 

This feature is commonly available during PBS Kids programming. It's available for select prime time programming as well such as Independent Lens, Live from Lincoln Center, and Nature. Accessing this setting varies depending on your set-up.  If you are using cable, it usually means changing a setting on the cable box.  If you're pulling in our broadcast via over-the-air signal then you should change the setting on your television.    

Access the PDF of our schedule grid and look for the DV icon which indicates whether a show offers the Descriptive Video Service on WITF.
