Closed Captioning For The Hearing Impaired
Sometimes I mute the TV and listen through the surround sound only. When muted, the closed captioning starts moving across the bottom of the screen. I can hear the words and read them at the same time. What I have noticed is that the words on the closed captioning are not what is being said on the TV. I suspect the majority of hearing impaired people using closed captioning have no idea what is going on in those TV programs. The captioning will use entirely different words, miss entire sentences and will often stop before the ending. Try It.
It would take a speed reader to be able to keep up with the rapidly scrolling words. Although I am a pretty fast reader, I cannot keep up with the words running across the screen, especially if I am trying to actually watch the show at the same time.
I would love to hear from someone who uses closed captioning.
Would love to hear your comments. If you don't want to register, make something up.
