Hi

I know that CSI - Crime Scene Investigation - The Complete Season 2 has Closed Captions English subtitles.

What I want to know is the following:

Are the subtitles placed at the bottom of the frame as regular subtitles ?

or

Are the subtitles placed directly below the person who is speaking (sometimes in the center of the image)?

I have seen both types of closed captions subs and as a foreigner customer I need english subtitles ( placed at the bottom of the frame ) for a better understanding.

So ...

Could anyone check the actual discs ?

thanks in advance

CSI does NOT have subtitles but the do have Close Captioned.

Therefore, if you set your player in progressive, you will not see the translation

Oh, and your display should be able to decode the CC information.

The location of the CC is exactly the same location as the regular removable subtitles (which this title doesn't have)

Well ...

1 ) I have a CC decoder.

2 ) I know that this title has no regular subtitles.

3 ) I know that this title has CC.

I want to know if the CC subs appear on the bottom of the frame or not ?

Anyone ... please ... I need your help

This is a request for all US members of this forum :

If you have CSI, put one disc in the dvd player and check the subtitles position.

I have replied to your question, and I quote:

"The location of the CC is exactly the same location as the regular removable subtitles"

this means, yes, it's below the frame (if you're using 4:3 TV), no, it's at the bottom of the frame (if you're using 16:9 TV)

I think Edgler means something else.

On some dvds (Schindler's List & other Universal releases for example) the subtitles (or closed captions) are placed exactly below the person who's speaking at that time, while on other dvds all subtitles appear at the same place, regardless of who's saying what.

And so, the question is: what kind of CC does the dvd of CSI have?

Mark_vdH,

Exactly ... you are entirely correct.

Then ... Kelly Grannell,


Can you explain this point definitively?

because

The location of the CC is not always exactly the same location as the regular removable subtitles ... so

What about in CSI ... anyone ?

Just threw in CSI season 2 and had a look.

The closed captions appear at the very bottom of the frame (except when credits are onscreen, when they appear at the top of the frame instead). The captions are sometimes moved left or right of centre to help illustrate which character in a multi-character shot is speaking, but they're always at the bottom of the frame.

Is that enough detail to be useful to you?
