Well, obviously, I use it all the time because I can't hear squat but I sometimes get very frustrated at the delayed receiving of the captions. This is really REALLY annoying on shows like Leno or The Late Show. The second guest could be out chit chatting and I'm still stuck on Leno's monologue!! And, you are right, the spelling is just plain bad sometimes.Originally Posted by echo1960
When I watch TV at my in-laws house, they refuse to turn captions on so I usually just skip the TV watching and go read. My youngest daugther (normal hearing) uses the captions all the time because she got in the habit of using them. My oldest daughter's husband doesn't like the captions...so I don't watch TV there - and in his defense (I can't believe I'm defending my twit son-in-law ) he has a huge screen and the captioning is pretty darned big. I suppose it's the same proportion to the picture as smaller screens, but the huge screen captioning does look odd.
