who rely on AD, yet still the provision of this is not universal.

news I know that programme subtitles are not an exact science, but the
rendition on the Beeb's programme this evening about the
photographer Olive Edis reached a new low. They spent as much time
correcting themselves as displaying the wrong words, and there was
no excuse for being live, it was a prerecorded assemble programme.

the code of practice should ban "live" subtitling for non-live


If only!

I've sent my complaint, I'll report any response. I won't hold my
breath, though.

Nor me :-)

If the average age of BBC viewers is really over 60, there must be a
number relying on subtitles.
