I wonder if any other users of this forum are as fed up as am I with the sub titling on TV?
I am severely hearing impaired and depend completely on programmes being sub titled.
Fair enough, most programmes on most channels are now adequately and correctly sub titled. But, when I watch a DVD the sub titling is in white letters directly on the screen. On TV the letters are in a black box.
I find this most offensive. For the majority of programmes (the excellent drama programmes on BBC and ITV for instance) it is not too bad, but for nature programmes a HUGE segment of screen is blotted out by that black box. For me most of the walking programmes ? which I love ? are ruined by a fifth of the screen being obscured. If it is all right for DVDs why not for TV?
I have written to the email address given for BBC sub titling and not received a reply.
Am I being unreasonable?
If not what can I do to try to get those responsible to consider the way this is done?
