WHAT a difference the coming of hi-tech subtitles made to the programmes on our tellies for us old fogies with failing hearing!
At last I can keep up with current events, or so I thought. Why, oh why, can’t they get it right?
All too often the subtitles on news programmes seem to consist of intermittent half sentences, which invariably tail off just before the punchline.
Equally annoying and confusing are the frequent occasions when one particular news item is accompanied by fragments of sub-titles relating to a previous clip, or anticipating the news flash.
Anyone know where I can obtain a good old-fashioned ear-trumpet?
