Unlike interlingual subtitles, SDH subtitles do not assume that the viewer can hear the audio content. This means that SDH subtitles not merely display dialogue, but they also describe the aural content. For example, this may include information about background noises or the music being played.
It is often the case that these sounds add crucial detail about the plot or video content. That is why it is so important to guarantee that they are described accurately and faithfully.
Everyone has the right to enjoy video content.
According to Action On Hearing Loss, there are 11 million people with hearing loss across the UK – that’s around one in every six of us, and the number is growing. Consequently, by ensuring that you provide SDH subtitles, you will be making a small investment to make a huge difference to your audience.
