Course Content

By comparing different types of subtitling, we will be able to identify the key features unique to Subtitling for the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

We will then analyse the different UK conventions in TV channels, online platforms, DVD and cinema and be aware of users’ needs and preferences.

To conclude, we will SDH a short clip in English taking into account conventions and users’ preferences.

Course Objectives

Participants will

  • understand the difference between standard interlingual subtitling and Subtitles for the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing (SDH)
  • understand the difference between the techniques involved in live and recorded subtitles
  • be aware of the needs and preferences of the target audience of this type of subtitling
  • produce a short piece of SDH (in English) using industry-standard software
