Sam the Deaf

That’s how the current HDMI works with HDTV

I'm Deaf, Media

Reference from Banjo’s World on “Equal Access: HDMI is Inaccessible” that is about HDMI that we, deaf and hard of hearing, need to have it go through to HDTV. Subtitle can be the problem with anybody with poor visual. Built-in Closed Caption from media box isn’t help that much, but useful with Sling anyway. So, the figure should help to clear up.
