Using sign language

A YouView Box FAQ

Sign language helps our users who have a loss of hearing. Here’s everything you need to know about using it:

By turning sign language on, you’ll be able to view a signed version of On Demand programmes, where available. 

  1. Bring up the menu on your remote

  2. Select Settings*

  3. Scroll down to the Accessibility & Language area and select Language & Subtitles

  4. Select Sign Language

  5. Select your preferred setting

  6. Select Done

*Depending on your box model, Settings will be on the last tab on the Main Menu or in a cog in the top right corner of the screen. You can get to the cog by pressing Up after opening the Main Menu. If you have the new Home Screen, you can access settings by pressing Up and then right after opening the home screen.

With the sign language setting turned on, we’ll automatically play the signed version when you select it.

Not all On Demand programmes are available with sign language. Look out for the [SL] icon on the programme information screen of an On Demand programme.
