Feature

Imagine watching a film where the sound track is impossible to make out properly.  You can’t follow the plot or appreciate the film, however hard you try.  If all sound tracks are like that, you probably give up going to the cinema, however much you used to love it.

That’s what it can be like to be a filmgoer with hearing loss.  Unless, of course, the film has subtitles! But how do you know which films have subtitles – or any other technology, which can bring you back into the cinema?

Edinburgh’s Subtitle and Captions Club may be the answer for you.

Read more about it in this recent article in the Edinburgh Reporter.
