Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I think CNN must offshore its closed captioning

It's obviously the work of non-English speaking dislexics. What hearing I have left is somewhat surreal, but nothing like what CC produces.

1. CC on news broadcasts is often weird

I suspect that it's done in real time by voice-recognition software. CC for scripted shows can be done ahead of time.

3. It's not just CNN

I've noticed misspelled words a lot on regular TV programing and TV movies.
I thought maybe someone couldn't type as fast as the people were speaking.

4. I have seen some weird stuff. Not just misspellings, but completely wrong words. I think they

must be using a speech-to-text program that has hearing issues of its own!

5. I've seen a lot of shows that have the same issues

since I'm only HOH, I can still make out some words and sometimes I'm like WTF did that caption just say

6. In case anyone's interested, the Deaf Digest website has newsletters ...

with a continuing column called "Comments from a CART operator" where they talk about being a captioner.
