It is called the "Secondary Audio Program" (SAP) here in the USA. I did not come up with that name. This SAP channel is not 
always there for many programs. It is therefore not the "normal" audio channel. I did not refer to "normal" as English, I 
referred to "normal" as not SAP.

Don't get so bent out of shape about how people use words. You are too easily triggered. Put the safety on and don't keep a 
bullet in the chamber.
