For some reason my LG TV connected to Xfinity has started talking to me.
It is obviously some for blind people who can still here because it does
play-by-play of the shows. Last night's Bones for instance, it said Cam
enters the room and goes to the autopsy table.
Looked through the LG and couldn't find anything that looks like it
would take it away. Any suggestions?

but what they conceal is vital.?
Check the remote and see if you can find any buttons that you
Normally don't use. One of those might be the reason it got
turned on. Beyond that if you can't find it in the instructions
try going to the menu and going through it item by item to see
if you can find the setting.

IDK, but this suggests it might be on the cable box side. Not exactly what
you're talking about, but it's similar and recent:

Here is what one LG owner posted in a A/V forum.
"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."
It's SAP, I think that means Secondary Audio Program.
It's closed captioning with voice instead of text.
When my computer comes up in that mode, the initial
voice-over tells you, in generic terms, how to turn it off.
I time shift all my TV and play them thru VLC.
I noticed that some programs have SAP, some don't, some
have multiple language streams. And they shift around
in the menu sequence, so I often have to switch audio
streams when I play a different program just to get
back to English. And which language comes up and whether
it has SAP enabled seems to be random.

First, what Kurt has isn't SAP. And SAP is voice converted to text. If
you had SAP and converted it to voice, you'd be back where you started.
Got it now?
Yiou drank Wayyyyyyy too much on New Years.....
Quit drinking for a week! :)
If course, if your tv starts to WATCH you, and follows you around the
house, you have a REALLY BIG PROBLEM :)
I hate it when my TV watches me!!!! <lol>
Some years ago, there was a website that had a picture of a tv screen,
with a moving eyeball on the screen. The eye was supposed to follow you
