Audio Feedback on your BT TV box

Audio Feedback has been added to support the viewing experience for partially sighted and blind viewers less able to interpret visual feedback. Audio tones are generated to let you know that a key press on the remote control has been received by the TV box.

You can switch this feature on by going to Settings > Accessibility & Language > Audio feedback. Choose your preferred setting, then go to Done. When pressing OK you can then go left and right to turn from 'OFF’ to 'ON'.

Audio feedback tones

A single short beep is played when you press a key on the remote which indicates it's been received by the TV box. A sequence of audio feedback tones will playback depending on the button presses, and will help communicate additional information to the user. See the table below for the different audio feedback tone types.
