    Are there any deaf people on WiiChat?

    Just wanted to ask a question to a deaf person.

    What is better when watching TV:
    > Subtitles
    > That irritating little person in the corner

    I ask this because I am getting REALLY annoyed that a lot of shows after 1am are ruined by that stupid sign-language idiot in the corner. I won't mind so much if it actually provides a useful purpose, but surely subtitles stay in sync better with the video.

    In the US there is no person performing sign language at the bottom of the TV. Here we have optional subtitles for deaf people watching TV. The subtitles are also very common at airports since it is usually hard to hear the TV there.

    There is optional subtitles here as well, which is why those little bastards in the corner are all the more infuriating.

    No. They appear on the bottom right of the screen on certain channels from about 1am onwards.

    This is irritating because I rarely go to bed before 4am

    It's for little children who haven't learned to read yet. Why deaf people come out at night, nobody knows.

    Especially on the music channels, come on.
    I love you, Adam.
