Efficiency and Optimization Study of the Subtitles for the Hard of Hearing

Abstract

During the last years, the offer of subtitling for the deaf and the hard of hearing increased, but the deaf community demands quality as well as quantity. Subtitles differ significantly between TV channels and suppliers, but these services do not seem to fulfill all the expectations of the final users and are unable to extend the profile of users of this kind of subtitles, as they do not adjust sufficiently to the specific needs of the heterogeneous deaf community, being used only by a minority. This study involved a wide sample of users. Thus, it is its intention to establish rules, as well as to avoid bad practices and erroneous ideas about this special kind of subtitling, in an effort to homogenize this service, in order to extend its audience, and to propose new lines of research on this subject.
