Amazing....So are you saying deaf people wouldnt dare be in the same room as someone who can hear? Absolutely amazing that someone would even think something this ignorant.
People lose hearing due to disease, trama, age, whatever and might actually enjoy watching TV with friends, loved ones.
What does SDH stand for and what does it do?
SDH enhances the closed captions to give a better understanding of where the sounds are coming from and special effect sounds - its more then just closed captions. Watch a quiet scene with someone knocking at the door, or walking up off screen, and it might show they are doing this. Sometimes I watch movies with subtitles on when my wife is studying with the sound down low and have noticed some of these things with SDH. She explained to me why they were different, oddly because, its part of her degree program to be a court reporter. Closed Captioning is part of that degree and apparenlty is a decent living.
