The Reception of Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Europe.
Year of publication


Four countries (Poland, Spain, Italy and Germany) participated in this second part of the project, since only they had access to eye- tracking technology. Their results are shown and discussed in chapter nine to twelve by the same authors who carried out the analyses of the questionnaires in those countries: Agnieszka Szarkowska (in this case with Izabela Krejtz, Zuzanna Klyszejko and Anna Wieczorek), Verónica Arnáiz-Uzquiza, Carlo Eugeni and Juliane Mascow Mascow. Each of the deaf, hard- of- hearing and hearing participants taking part in these tests watched 690 subtitles for about 28 minutes and answered 69 comprehension questions about the clips, which yields a total of 7210 answers about the content of the subtitles, visual elements and the general meaning of the clips. As far as eye tracking is concerned, this volume provides data about 71,070 subtitles as viewed by 103 deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing viewers in four different countries, thus providing the first comprehensive comparative picture of how audiences with different degrees of hearing loss process subtitles in Europe, which is then compared to how they understand them and what they think about them.
