Look Ma, No Captions!
i was watching The Food Network's Unwrapped the other day when i noticed that the captioning wasn't consistent with the narration. whatever Mark Summers was saying would show up delayed in the captions. i found this rather frustrating because not only could i hear what he was saying, but it didn't coincide with the words i was reading on the television screen.
SOOO... for the first time ever since i've been wearing my CI, i deliberately turned off the Closed Captioning -- and i felt *SO* empowered! i actually preferred to listen to the narration of the show rather than read the delayed captioning.
yay, me! yay, CI! i could understand and hear and everything. WOO-HOO!!!
