    When you press the i button on sky and it brings up the program synopsis etc it has abbreviations in the top right hand corner such as W for widescreen, DD for dolby digital etc. But what does AD mean?

    Cheers

    If I remember rightly it means Audio Description. As far as I know it is like subtitles but spoken. Normally subtitles add descriptions such as 'Dog barking in the distance etc.' but with AD they can be spoken.

    Hope this makes sense. :thumbsup:
