Radio text / Scrolling text
Have you ever heard a song on the radio and wanted to know who it is by or what it's called? Or tuned into speech radio and wanted to know what the programme is about or who is speaking?
Digital radio sets come equipped with a small screen which carries information about the programme you're listening to.
Digital radio doesn't suffer from the annoying effects of interference caused by adverse atmospheric conditions or electrical interference. The way digital radio is broadcast means there is no hiss and crackle, no fading, no overlap, just as long as you are within the coverage area.
