Subtitles on BBC iPlayer
A quick heads-up as they say round here. Some serious 'blue skies' thinking involved running the notion of online subtitles up our flagpole.
The BBC's much discussed catchup TV service known as iPlayer
now has subtitling.
Jonathan Important Title Hassell (he does access stuff and is rather good at it) lets you in on the latest in an entry called Subtitles and Signing Advances on BBC iPlayer.
It's not 100% like on the telly but it's getting there. He explains the techie challenges but, hurrah, at least some TV shows now have words ribboning along at the bottom of the screen so that more of us can now use iPlayer - a danged amazing service I'm telling yer. I mean, you thought Celebdaq was good! well, if you haven't watched tv shows online using iPlayer then you haven't lived, buster. even my mum does it.
Oh and check out the Sign Zone on iPlayer if you are one of these hand oriented communication dudes. ALL SIGNED SHOWS, ALL IN ONE PLACE! That's all! None of this staying up until 3am and watching BBC 1 nor nuffink. Sheesh. respect.
