Sure, i will enjoy watching without them, but they help so much.

fuk, sometimes those damn actors mumble their words with their "fake accents" they put on, and i don't know what they're saying.

especially UK shows. I can definitely understand the whole plot better with subtitles, and get jokes that would normally fly over my head, because i can literally see them on screen.

anyone else like this?


I don't find them distracting at all
(except when watching stand-up comedy, messes up the timing of the jokes)

I know what you mean. and in some cases even turning up the volume won't help. mumblin' mutherfrs. I don't really mind it. it's like books on film

if i'm watching something on tv yeah i have to have subtitles on. movies suck bc they can't balance volume right, so when i turn the volume up enough to hear the quiet ass dialogue the loud shit blows my eardrums out.
honestly doesn't happen often bc the only thing i ever watch on tv anymore is basketball

if i'm watching something on my PC i'm using headphones so it's alright, tho most of the stuff i watch on my PC is subtitled anime anyway

Lol I just posted about this in another thread. I have no trouble at all understanding speech but subtitles help me pay attention and remember what's happening if the show is longer than half an hour.

Even if the volume is loud as shit, I still like to watch them with subtitles. Everything, movies, tv shows, video games, etc

Nah. Prefer films without them. Though I'd rather read an excerpt than listen to talk radio. Either way I dislike natural speech patterns.

I don't find them distracting in the slightest, and, due to my bad hearing, often use them.

I don't prefer subtitles for things in my native language.
If the video game has the option though I will turn the dialogue volume all the way up and the effects/music down to 50% or below.

Never done this before, but it seems pretty useful for thick Scottish accents. Will give it a try someday.

Sometimes I use subtitles but theres a couple of things that annoy me about them.
One, in video games, sometimes the subtitles obscure parts of the UI so you have to wait for them to disappear to interact with things.
And two, when movies or TV shows that are predominantly speaking english have a character say something in another language but the subtitles don't bloody translate that part. It's like, can't you just do a tiny bit of work to tell me what they're saying, otherwise whats the point.

Sometimes I do.

It's helpful if the audio mix on the show isn't too great and the dialogue blends into the background noise

And remember who you are

I just turn the volume up. Thanks to the US Army and years in a steel foundry I'm hard of hearing.

I do find subtitles useful at times, especially when the actor is speaking like he has a mouthful of marbles. I'm thinking of you, Tom Hardy.
#27
I only put subtitles on in video games and that's because games like to occasionally have dramatic music going on in cutscenes or have dialogue going over the various sound effects from your playing. It's not like a tv show or movie at home where I'd just rewind if I missed something.

I try not too, but sometimes the actors are incomprehensible so I turn them on.

Also, I use subtitles if I am eating chips and I can't hear the voices over the sound of my own masticating.
#29
Yeah, I need subtitles because my buddy usually cranks up the heavy metal music so loud that there's no possible way to know what is occurring without them.

Subtitles allow you to listen to music really loud.

or if it's one of the earlier talkies where the audio is so fucked

I don't mind subtitles and sometime I do when watching.

I always had problem understanding actors/characters' dialogues in Francis Ford Coppola's movie called "Bram Stoker's Dracula", so I decided to watch it with subtitles. I've read the book though.

I hate pausing and rewinding and straining to hear better so I ALWAYS put subtitles on. Helps with the "flow".
