    TV using subtitles?

    That sounds like the old system we had in the UK, I think somewhere from the 90's, but that is actually still used here on some channels, because different channels use different subs providers, but coloured makes conversations a whole lot easier to follow.

    TV using subtitles?

    Shortening conversations is bad enough, some channels here I even get out of sequence subs, like the texting is lagging, enough to driving you insane trying to keep up.:D I do occasionally try with my aid in, but with background sound & effects I find it impossible.

    TV using subtitles?

    Hey Heavy, reading your story very similar to the research I did online & with a few deaf friends into the 60's to the 80's, whereby deaf & hoh children were sent to specials school, some called them either, schools for slow learners or backward schools, some kind of reference that these...

    TV using subtitles?

    up until 2009 we just had 5 channels "bbc1, bbc2, itv, channel 4 & channel 5" then we went digital which was great, except 99% of us have to buy either new digital tv's or a digital converter box, similar to yours I guess, as it obviously meant Cathode ray tube tv's are now redundant. Now we...

    TV using subtitles?

    Wow your subtitle options are far more variable than us in the UK who view free tv, being retired I can't actually afford to have Sky or any subscription service, but totally agree that some subtitle services aren't very good & here they shorten so much of the real conversation, which pretty...

    Tinnitus is driving me crazy

    Hiya Caramlmachiato, I used to have the same problem not being able to sleep at night due to tinnitus, I found thinking of nice memories or just thoughts of past times can distract the tinnitus enough to eventually fall asleep in a reasonable time, kind of overriding it with thoughts.
