Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

Don Walls

I usually just go to, then / and the name of whatever program I want.  When I did phone the CBC, I was told there’s a button to press to turn on DVS, but I couldn’t find it.  I only used my IPod Touch once, when away from home, and that’s when the DVS link appeared near the end of the video being played.

I’m wondering if someone can help.  When I go to CBC TV’s website and press the link to the video of a TV program, I don’t know how to turn on descriptive video service.  Apparently there’s a button but I can’t find it on my PC connection.  Last week, while away from home, I listened to a CBC TV program using my IPod Touch.  Again, no discernible DVS link but as the program was finishing, lo and behold, a descriptive link was announced, I pressed it and got the last minute with DVS!


Any suggestions?
