I'm not sure that Larry started with the latest text, for the recent insert.
Here is the insert on my old (latest?) base text:
In order to comply with this subpart, the user controls needed to
configure and activate any accessibility feature, and the general
controls used by those needing that accessibility feature, on
products that receive or display analog or digital television, must
be easy to find and easy to use by people needing that accessibility
feature. In at least one location, these must be comparable in
prominence to the controls needed to mute sound, or perform program
selection, where the ability to control these features is otherwise
1. For captioning: (a) A caption on/off on a TV remote comparable in
prominence to the volume control on that remote; (b) Caption controls
on the first menu that appear when on-screen menus are displayed
2. Audio equivalents to on-screen information and visual menu selections
3. A tactile button to turn on audio equivalents;
4. A user preferences dialog that is accessible and directly reachable from
a login screen.
