What is Video Description and how do I turn it on/off?
The talking guide for Xfinity X1 is a Voice Guidance feature that allows customers with visual disabilities the freedom to independently explore thousands of TV shows and movies. It "speaks" what's on the screen and includes details such as program descriptions to help you decide what to watch.
Voice Guidance is available for the Main Menu, Guide, Saved, On Demand, Settings, Mini Guide, Channel Info and Channel Collection sections of the X1 on-screen menu, as well as the X1 Sports App.
**Note**: The talking guide is available in both English and Spanish.
