    I have no idea what I have done, but I have a voice over woman/man that describes the scene. For example, i'm watching friends on Channel 4 atm. Rachel clicks her fingers and a weird women says "Rachel clicks her fingers", "Rachel puts her arm around Joey".

    It was the same last night whilst watching Road Wars on Sky 3. It doesn't describe...

    "Rachel grins with a smug smile on her face"

    ... every scene, just some. I thought it was some weird feature in Road Wars, but it's happening now.

    What in Gods name have I enabled!?

    Thats descriptions for the blind , I dont think its anything to do with your TV though , its an option on the Sky Service , so check whatever box you have from whatever supplier your subscribed too.

    It's a built in FreeviewHD tuner in the TV. I was playing with the remote last night, might be something on there. Any idea what the option might be called.

    We have an LG 32LD490. This afternoon for no apparent reason the voice over, disability function, audio description came on. Took a while but worked out what to do. It comes on when volume turned down to zero. How to stop it; go to Menu, Option, Disability Assistance, select Hard of Hearing to "OFF", down to Audio Description and select to "ON", ( here's the important bit) , down to Volume and set to -1, back up to Audio Description and set to "OFF", then Exit. That'll do it. I can't see why it has a -1 and lower but luckily I don't have a disability. Hope it works for you.

    If your LCD TV is connected to Sky HD whether you subscribe to HD or not, press the help button on the Sky HD it will bring up Audio Description if says on press the right direction button to turn off then press Select.

    We just had a new Sky HD box fitted as the Sky + broke down,but they replaced with a Sky HD + box and it didn't do it on the old one. So I searched the settings on the HD remote and found it after a week of putting up with the annoying chatter in the background. I hope that this helps some of you!

    Taken hours on the web to find the answer , how to switch off audio description on our LG smart TV ( paul01924 ) reply solved the problem. going to Sky help took seconds to switch audio off.
    Check LG user guide - option- check disabled assistance is off.
