Have your say on TV subtitles

Have your say

Action on Hearing Loss is calling on TV viewers in South Yorkshire who rely on subtitles to take part in a survey which aims to identify problems affecting quality.

The survey can be taken at http://svy.mk/subtitlesurvey and Action on Hearing Loss will pass the results to Ofcom, which is currently addressing the problems that contribute to poor quality subtitling.

Roger Wicks, Director of Policy at Action on Hearing Loss, said: “The quality of subtitling is the issue our members feel most strongly about, so we are delighted that Ofcom recognises quality is an important factor when it comes to the effectiveness of subtitling.”

The survey asks viewers to share views about programmes where subtitling was of poor quality and the reason why it was poor.
