So Channels/ programmes often don't have subtitles for the hearing impaired/ deaf because it is expensive . Yet without exception all have music or some sort of noise classed as music - Does that come free then ? Does that not cost ? Yet often this very music is often unecessary - particulary when speech is involved. Very often it is difficult to hear what is being said because of the music/background sound. Why is music there at all when someone is speaking ? Does it do anything to further the understanding of what is being said - or does it detract ? Certainly. some hearing impaired people - though not all - might be able to distinguish what is being said if the volume of the music was not louder then the volume of the speech, which it frequently is. Music does not help understanding & sound discrimination. Subtitles do.
