The wrong sub-titel

Sorry its only in German

Re: The wrong sub-titel

As a profoundly deaf person, I am reliant on the subs to get what's going on on the screen, I do this simultaneously with lipreading where possible.

Glad to have this ability of lipreading, sometimes the gibberish on the bottom of the screen would cause more confusion than anything else.

However, it causes many a chuckle for me.

Funnily enough, the most mistakes happen with German subtext, in particular Swiss telly, whereas any UK TV-channel, even when they cover something ad-hoc ( Breaking News coverage), there are seldom grave mistakes.

In the Austrian mishap ( Hey Küken ) they 'only' mixed up prefab Subs of a telenovela with the actual, pre-recorded subtext for the ceremony. It was funny indeed

Re: The wrong sub-titel

Much more interesting is that Sebastian Kurz is back! After less than a year.
I know it was planned (he planned it) but still, I sure have neglected watching our neighbours politics.

Re: The wrong sub-titel

Wondering where the sudden infuatuation with the greens will take Kurz, who campaigned on a rather right wing platform. The coalition agreement sems to have all the headlines written by the ÖVP and all the small print by the Greens so it will be interesting to see how that works out.
