Sorry I forgot about this help request for months as I took a short break from regular flying. Has there been any luck in finding something amiss in the log file from my previous post in this thread?

I have a thought if it is working for everyone else but me... as I have posted elsewhere, I am deaf and I do not use the PF3 voices at all. I only use the RemoteText captions. I am wondering if the request to continue taxiing, and the granting of such requests, does work as sound output, but does not show up in RemoteText?

Hello again. As a few of you may remember I am deaf. So I depend on RemoteText to know if anything is being said or not. I recently got hearing aids (for real world flying) and have been using them in flight sims as well. What do you know, when I hold short of a runway and request to cross it, I do hear myself asking to cross and the tower responding. Obviously I can't understand what was said (I am deaf, not hard of hearing). So the request can be heard, but does not show up in RemoteText. Can that be fixed for a future update, please? Thank you! In addition, are A.I. planes supposed to ask to cross runways as well or does that PF3 feature only work for human pilots?

I will certainly look into that... it should work. In answer to your other question, no, AI traffic will not request permission to cross runways. AI traffic is controlled by FS unfortunately.

...I simply can't remember how it used to be!

Do you have TGS enabled? While TGS is active, closed captions are supressed, and I think this will affect remote text, too.

Greetings Thomas. I finally got around to testing your reply above. That is true, I do not remember ever seeing closed captions when TGS is active. I just tested it and I can hear the dialogue to request crossing a runway just fine with my hearing aids. So now my question is: would it be possible for closed captions to be allowed to remain on when TGS is active?

It will be an option in the next release

Greetings again! Has this not been implemented for the new 3.10 update and 3.10.1 hotfix? I just tried it the other day and still do not see instructions to hold and cross runways in RemoteText. Thank you for the recent update.
