Halton viewers who rely on subtitles urged to take part in survey
A CHARITY is asking Halton television viewers who rely on subtitles to take part in a major survey.
Action on Hearing Loss will send the results to Ofcom, which is currently addressing the problems that contribute to poor quality subtitling.
Roger Wicks, the charity’s director of policy, said: “The quality of subtitling is the issue our members feel most strongly about.
“Radio frequencies, aerial configurations or geographical locations can affect the availability and quality of subtitles. This survey aims to identify common themes and potential problem areas with a view to improving quality for viewers with hearing loss.”
