Re: Reading subtitles in Netflix with NVDA

That hasn’t been my experience, though granted I don’t watch described movies all that often and so the number of subtitled ones I tried were very small. Some movies simply don’t have enough quiet parts for that to be realistically feasible. Others’ experiences and opinions may of course vary, but if I can’t listen to the actual actors speaking, regardless of what language that happens to be in, I’m out of it.

All the audio described content i have watched they do it in the quiet parts and do it very well.

I don't really know anything about Netflix, and this might not be avilable for some of the new shows there, but it might well be for older ones and movies. I usually just find a file with an .srt extension on the internet, and download it to my braille display device. It's not the best arrangement as the subtitles don't move with the dialogue as they are supposed to, but it's not so bad once you get the hang of it; you just have to focus pretty hard. I'd much rather do this than listen to a synth or a human reading the subtitles, talking over the actual actors in the film!-----Original Message-----From: firstname.lastname@example.org <email@example.com> On Behalf Of MallardSent: March 4, 2019 2:51 PMSubject: Re: [nvda] Reading subtitles in Netflix with NVDAHello Gene,Thanks.I know how to get around Netflix in Android, although subtitles there aren't very usable.A friend and I were trying to see them on computers, so I'll have a lookat the page you recommended.I can find audiodescriptions without diffilulties. I'm currentlywatching The Crown and Black Mirror, plus a couple of Italian series andLa Casa de Papel in Spanish, which I'd started watching last year, butnow I discovered audiodescriptions, and it's a great thing...Ciao and thanks,OllieIl 04/03/2019 20:41, hurrikennyandopo ... ha scritto:HiI was lazy but this page will mostly cover what you want depending onthe device you use.
