SAP Secondary Audio Program

Have you heard about SAP, but you haven’t used it? Well the SAP could be a great tool to practice and improve your Spanish.

SAP stands for Secondary Audio Program, a feature on most stereo televisions and VCRs manufactured in mid 90s. SAP is often used in the U.S. to supply Spanish-language audio for English-language television programs. “En Español”. The SAP feature allows a TV station to broadcast other information to the viewer through the audio receiver system. The other information could be the same program audio in another language, or something completely different, such as weather information or Descriptive Video Services (DVS) for the visually impaired.

It is easy to get the Spanish-language audio on your Stereo TV set. You can select SAP by pressing the menu button on your TV or on your remote control, selecting the audio function from the menu, and switching to SAP from mono or stereo. If you have satellite or cable, it is much easier. Just go to setting and select “audio/SAP” and all set.

So now you can watch your favorite show or movie in Spanish!!! Additionally you can enable closed caption in Spanish as well, which will make it easier to catch those words we miss when we just listen.Remember, anything helps when you are learning or improving your Spanish.
