You do realize they use special keyboards that just have keys that are mapped to IPA standard characters, which in turn is fed into a computer that translates it into English right? Sometimes the computer gets it wrong.

Meh. Back in the late 90s I saw a CC refer to "First Lady Tommy Hilfiger".

Back in like 2004, Google ran a beta where you could web search all of TV's closed-captioning. It was the greatest thing ever, but they killed it.

Doesn't that mean you are no better than us, my fellow Farker? Did you not realize this? By claiming those words of wisdom, when "the opposite is true," you have exposed yourself as the worst person ever.

IPA = India Pale Ale.  It means you have to be drunk on them to make sense of the translation.

My brother is hearing impaired and uses CC when we watch TV.  It drives me crazy because half the time the CC reads like a 2nd Grader high on Robotussin is just typing random words in and I can't concentrate on the movie.

I'm always going to think back to middle school when I watched music videos with CC on. They barely tried with rap. The lyrics to Warren G Regulate became

Kind of figured a computer would do some spell checking but this is news to me.

Did you know that medical translators can make upward of 70 dollars an hour When doing live work?

Now we've both learned something new.

The subtitles on British DVDs are almost as bad. They leave out tons of dialogue.
