My dad’s hearing has been deteriorating for a while now, to the point where we’ve now been using closed captioning on the TV. I have to say, I’m rather amazed at how badly closed captioning sucks. So often its just awful.
I was watching a Bruce Willis movie the other day that kept transcribing completely unimportant things the background characters were saying. You’d have the main characters having an important conversation that was made completely impossible to follow because they’d stick in sentence fragments from the background. Stuff that’s completely inaudible and has absolutely nothing to do with anything.
