And if he watches Sesame Street he can watch The Count count.
Totally valid if he’s learning a foreign language ( like English? )
He’s squinting. Time for Brewster to get glasses.
My wife and I use captioning for everything except the news (which is too out of sync with the speech). We’re old.
This isn’t a joke, this is actually very much worth it.
There’s dozens of books coming out everyday, they’re crap.
Captions or subtitles help with your reading speed. Watching a 20 minute show saves you from reading a 10 hour crap.
Then you can use your faster reading skill to select and read something worthwhile in a couple of days.
I used to use the public library service Hoopla to watch videos. I watched one movie on my phone on the bus, but it was too quiet so I turned on the captions. I went back to my Chrome stick and now the captions were on permanently. If I toggled the caption option, I got two sets of captions on the screen, stacked on top of one another. I searched online for answers, and found that others have the same problem. The official answer from Hoopla: “That’s impossible.” I should have posted a screen grab of the double captions, but I gave up watching Hoopla instead.
That’s the only way I can watch movies
Missing panel 3: “Hunh? What’d you say?”
I use the captions as well especially while watching British TV shows. Some accents are easier to understand than others and the captioning REALLY helps.
Baby steps…baby steps. This is Brewster we’re talking about.
My NBC affiliate will have Spanish closed captions for Premiere League Soccer. I wish Telemundo had English captions for its futbol presentations.
Some folks get intoxicated and watch auto-generated captions. It’s like “word salad” from Gertrude Stein translated into Japanese and back again. :)
Reading a hundred times as much. Would be even more if he intentionally checked.
Brewster is hard of hearing so he’ll read television more
I’ve been watching a lot of foreign films lately on Netflix…with the caption on so I can read it in English…
I used to have a teevee where you could set the captions to come on when you muted the volume.
Closed captioning implies the the existence of “open captioning.”
Brewster wants to experience every part of the show.
