    There is presently discussion about the symbols to be used to indicate the
    availability of Audio Description, Subtitle and Signing in television

    This is being discussed in the Digital_TV and TV_for_All discussion forums
    at the http://www.cenelec.org webspace.

    I am suggesting that the following Private Use Area code points be used for
    the symbols at the present time. This could lead to a useful consistency of
    encoding for use with interactive television systems. Hopefully regular
    Unicode code points will be established at some time in the future, these
    Private Use Area code point suggestions are simply to help in achieving
    consistency in the mean time.

    U+F2F0, decimal 62192, Audio Description
    U+F2F1, decimal 62193, Subtitle
    U+F2F2, decimal 62194, Signing
