English Close Caption

Watching Telemundo television station in Spanish at the start of its 10pm show, we noticed the availability of its CC3 close captioned track in English, which I tried to display to experience a reverse translation.

The remote control is the only way to access those advanced functions, so we had to turn the lights on to see where the buttons were; the SAP button did not do the trick, so I had to start playing with the Menu button; accessing the menu, the arrows positioned on a circular fashion on the middle of the remote, moved the cursor to get to the required option.

Associating the cursor arrows around the circle (like a digital camera) I selected the options pressing the center of the cirle, but in response I was taken each time to a list of bookmarked channels; thinking that the options were not taken, I started repeating the steps and found that the option for CC3 was taken, so I browsed thru other close captioned options to see if one of those worked on the fly; ready to give up, I noticed the option to display close caption as part of the menu, which I selected, sending me to the list of bookmarked channels again.

Pressing the menu button, the list of channels dissapeared, and after a moment of silence, the close caption white letters on black strips started showing. Unexpectedly, the play moved to a verbal conversation in English, with its corresponding translation to Spanish in large letters, behind the CC3 white English text on black strips. At that moment, we all had to understand English, or ignore the dialog.
