BBC Two Video – How Subtitles Are Made

The BBC Two program See Hear has a video up about Red Bee Media, the BBC’s subtitling company. It shows how subtitles are created and what can be done to improve subtitle quality. If you’ve watched TV with subtitles, especially live, and wondered why captioning was off by almost a minute or the words made no sense, watch the video to find out. I’m sure Red Bee Media’s process is similar to captioning technology in other countries. The results can be funny and frustrating for people who rely on accurate subtitles to enjoy and understand television programs.
