its not just a matter of reading the words of the subtitles... you also have to listen to the audio and watch the picture and put it all together in your mind to comprehend it....

so really you are watching the picture as a whole and just for a split second you focus at the bottom and skim your eyes across the subtitles then back up to the picture...

or maybe you spend more time focusing on the subtitle than the picture if you are slow at reading....

but all in all to me its like an art form... some people are better than others....maybe even some people have special techniques to watching something subtitles....

how do YOU watch something with subtitles?

(^o^)/


I'm a fast reader, and if im watching a korean film I usually see what kind of "emotions" they have, but most of the time I have to read the subtitles because I don't know Korean fluently lol...but i have to admit the subtitles are 10000x better than the DUBBED versions.

lol i love subtitles have u ever watched so much anime or live action, anything in Japanese and then u click on something and its in English (or your native language) and you didn't understand it?? haha.. i have done this b4.. I was like..."What??!" and like after 5 secs im like "OHH its in English.." I totally didn't understand.. hahaha. it was wicked bad lol

and reading subs is easy. in less there weird subs that like blend into the background or like are in a weird fount or color. >.> haha

I've gotten used to it. It's all pretty natural to me. I can focus on both the subtitles and what's happening very easily. I can even look away sometimes or talk to someone else. Just feels like watching a movie to me.

lol ^_^

Well coming a non-english speaking country one adapts very early as the majority of movies are in english, and well.. One recognizes the words so rather than actually reading the subtitles, you just gotta watch them for 2-3 seconds. Have noticed though, that when watching anime, there are stillpictures all the time making for a good time to read the subtitles.. so uhm.. more practice? :p

I enjoy reading subtitles. At least I can understand whatever is going on if I can't hear the voices clearly.

I was a natural fast reader when I started watching subs so I was fine when reading and my eyes are fast so I have it easy.

I don't like them =_= Especially when it's the only way to watch, but if I have to, I will.
